I am a theoretical physicist working in the field of open quantum systems,
quantum information theory, quantum optics, condensed matter systems and
mathematical physics.
My research interests are directed toward understanding the possibilities
and limitations of photonic quantum information processing and devising
methods to control the effects of noise therein. This would allow us to
realize scalable and universal quantum computing devices. I have developed
various methods to perform quantum teleportation in the orbital angular
momentum states of a single photon. I have devised implementation schemes
to realize one and multidimensional quantum walks using classical
optical setup. Currently, I am working on simulating quantum algorithms
such as Shor's algorithm using optical systems.
I am also working on Quantum memories. A quantum memory is a device which
is capable of storing and reemitting a single photon on demand. I am
interested in studying the effect of the thermal and phononic bath on the
efficiency of the quantum memory which is realized in various systems.
