Research Interests

I am interested in the mathematics of quantum computer programs (quantum programs) and its application to formal verification.

Quantum computing is counter-intuitive and distinct from classical computing, which makes it challenging to design and implement quantum protocols, algorithms, and programs accurately. Therefore, it is crucial to ensure their correctness through verification.

While existing logics/algebras can be used to verify that classical systems enjoy some desired properties, they cannot be directly applied to quantum systems due to the distinct principles used in quantum computing.

I am aiming to establish formal verification techniques for quantum programs by combining Dynamic Logic with Quantum Logic.
