Martin Suchara

Computational Science 3


Martin Suchara is a Computational Scientist at Argonne National Laboratory with expertise in quantum computing. His research focuses on quantum communication and networking, quantum error correction, quantum simulations, and making quantum computation more efficient and reliable. Prior to joining Argonne Martin worked at AT&T Labs and received postdoctoral training in quantum computing from UC Berkeley and the IBM T. J. Watson Research Center. Martin received his PhD from the Computer Science department at Princeton University.
