Abhijeet Alases

I obtained a PhD in Physics from Dartmouth College (USA) in 2019. Under the supervision of Dr. Lorenza Viola, my PhD thesis focused on the boundary physics and the bulk-boundary correspondence in topological phases of matter. After PhD, I joined Dr. Barry Sanders' and Dr. David Feder's research groups at the Institute for Quantum Science and Technology (IQST), University of Calgary (Canada). where I held the prestigious Killam Postdoctoral Fellowship. My research at the University of Calgary explored many topics in quantum information science, including quantum simulation using ultracold atoms, quantum algorithms, topological quantum sensing, Majorana-based topological quantum computation, PT symmetry and foundations of quantum mechanics. I joined the University of Sydney as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Quantum Information Theory in August 2022. My research focuses on the applications of topological phases for quantum technologies.
