Background

Daniel Gottesman received his PhD in 1997 from Caltech, where he was a student of John Preskill. He then held postdoctoral positions at Los Alamos National Lab, Microsoft Research, and UC Berkeley (as a long-term CMI Prize Fellow for the Clay Mathematics Institute).

Affiliations

University of Waterloo (adjunct)

Research Interests

He currently works on quantum computation, particularly quantum error correction, fault-tolerant quantum computation, quantum cryptography, and quantum complexity. I am best known for developing the stabilizer code formalism for creating and describing a large class of quantum codes, and for work on performing quantum gates using quantum teleportation.
