Role: Glasstone Research Fellow


Dr Bálint Koczor


I currently hold a Glasstone Research Fellowship at the University of Oxford and a research fellowship at Lady Margaret Hall. Previously, I was a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Materials of the University of Oxford working on the quantum theory of early quantum computers. I completed my PhD at the Technical University of Munich in mathematical physics working on fundamental aspects of quantum theory.

Research interests

My current research focuses on the theory of quantum computers: These machines operate according to laws of quantum physics and might help us to solve important practical problems in materials science or in drug discovery. I have been developing and analysing quantum algorithms that specifically target near-term quantum computers, but I am also generally interested in fundamental and mathematical aspects of quantum theory.
