We have funding for a

in quantum computing (specifically: quantum algorithms and complexity, incl. quantum communication and learning theory).

Foreign students: I don’t supervise undergrad summer internships unless they are exceptionally well in tune with my research, so please don’t send me your generic internship applications.

I am a researcher at the Algorithms and Complexity group of CWI
(Dutch Centre for Mathematics and Computer Science) and part-time full professor at the ILLC of the University of Amsterdam. I’m also a member of QuSoft.
A long time ago I was a PhD student at CWI and ILLC, and then a postdoc at UC
My main scientific interests are quantum computing and complexity theory.
