Daniel Miller joined IBM Research - Zurich in 2020 as a PhD fellow of the Quantum Technology & Computing group. His research focus is on the development of Spin Qubit Hardware and Quantum Chemistry Applications. He is a student within the (Swiss) National Centre of Competence in Research (NCCR) project with the title "Spin Qubits in Silicon", as well as in the (European) Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action (MSCA) project entitled "QUSTEC" (grant agreement number 847471).
Prior to this, Daniel graduated from Heinrich-Heine-University Düsseldorf (Germany) with degrees in both Theoretical Physics and Pure Mathematics. The titles of his theses are:
- "Chains of Ideals in Tensor Products of Fields", B. Sc. Mathematics (2017).
- "Propagation and Correction of Errors in Quantum Circuits", B. Sc. Physics (2017).
- "Small quantum networks in the qudit stabilizer formalism", M. Sc. Physics (2019).
- "Locally Free Sheaves on Projective N-Space and Generalizations", M. Sc. Mathematics (2020).
During his studies, Daniel mainly focused on Physics, in particular Quantum Information Theory, and co-/authored five published papers about Quantum Error Correction and Quantum Communication. In Mathematics, he studied Grothendieckian Algebraic Geometry.
