EPSRC Fellowship seeks new algorithms for quantum computers
A lecturer in the Department of Computer Science at Bristol University has been awarded an EPSRC Early Career Fellowship for research on the theory of quantum computing.
Dr Ashley Montanaro, who is also a member of Bristol’s cross-departmental Quantum Computation and Information group, will be looking to examine new quantum algorithms, says the university.

During this £1million project, entitled ‘New insights in quantum algorithms and complexity’, Dr Montanaro’s research will address this challenge by designing new algorithms and protocols for quantum computers, and developing general principles that determine for which problems a quantum advantage is possible. Dr Montanaro will work in collaboration with partners including MIT and the University of Technology, Sydney, and also with the Centre for Quantum Photonics at Bristol. Collaborating with this world-leading experimental group will enable the development of real implementations of algorithms designed during the project.
