Role: Glasstone Research Fellow


Dr Bálint Koczor


I am an Associate Professor in Quantum Information Theory at the Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford. Previously, I was a postdoctoral researcher and then a Glasstone Research Fellow in the Department of Materials, 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. Please refer to my departmental webpage for more information.

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.
