Daniel Gottesman comes from the Microsoft research division to work for CMI. Daniel started off working on black hole evaporation before becoming interested in quantum computers. His recent work focuses on quantum error-correcting codes. In particular, he studied a class of codes called stabilizer codes and showed that any stabilizer code could be used to perform fault tolerant quantum computation.
Daniel Gottesman was a Clay Research Fellow from January 1, 2001 to August 31, 2002.
