Computational Science Initiative 
Brookhaven National Laboratory   
I am a Scientist at the Computational Science Initiative at BNL. Prior to joining BNL I was a researcher at the Institute for Quantum Computing in Waterloo, a researcher at MIT's Research Laboratory of Electronics, a Marie Curie fellow at the National University of Ireland and a National Research Council research associate at the NIST/UMD Joint Quantum Institute. I received my BSc from Sharif University of Technology and my PhD in Physics from Florida State University. 
My research is primarily focused at the intersection of condensed matter physics and quantum information theory: how our understanding of quantum systems can be used to design better quantum computers and how quantum computers can be used to better understand complex quantum phenomena. My past research experience includes topological quantum computing, fractional quantum Hall effect, and adiabatic quantum algorithms.
