Recent highlights and publications

Three more recent works (selection):
Hybrid divide-and-conquer approach for tree search algorithms
One liner: When can arbitrarily smaller quantum computers help speed up many search and optimization algorithms? Answer here: link

Towards quantum advantage for topological data analysis
One liner: Can quantum algorithms for topological data analysis be dequantized, or is an exponential speed-up here "safe"? Answer here: link

To quantum or not to quantum: towards algorithm selection in near-term quantum optimization
One liner: Can we know in advance if a quantum algorithm will beat a classical on a given instance, without running the costly quantum device? Answer here: link

Published highlights:

pic1 Feb '19: paper "Active learning machine learns to create new quantum experiments" (published version, arXiv) done in collaboration with amazing colleagues at University of Innsbruck and IQOQI and University of Vienna awarded the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences Cozzarelli Prize.


Dec '18: paper "Computational Speedups Using Small Quantum Devices" (published version, arXiv) done with friends at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics selected as Phys. Rev. Lett. Editor's Suggestion, and featured in Physics.

Full list of publications (41 published + 8 pre-prints) can be downloaded here.

All my publications are available on arXiv, and scientometrics can be found on my google scholar pages.
