# PostDocs

## Oliver Reardon-Smith

PostDocI am a post doctoral researcher in Adam Sawicki’s group in the Center for Theoretical Physics, Polish Academy of Sciences. My interests include the theory of quantum computers as well as quantum information theory and foundations more generally, but my recent work has focused on:

- The resource theory of magic and its generalisations
- Classical simulation of quantum computations
- Quantum gatesets and compilation
- ε-nets and t-designs

# PhD Students

## Oskar Słowik

PhD StudentBy education, I am a mathematician, theoretical physicist and computer scientist. My scientific interests span a wide range of topics within those three subjects. My main area of research is mathematical and quantum physics, specifically applications of geometry and topology in quantum information and computation. My PhD supervisor is Prof. Adam Sawicki.

The main topics of my current research are:

- efficiency of quantum gates and random walks on compact groups
- quantum compilation
- t-designs and ε-nets
- geometry and topology of quantum correlations
- reliability of quantum hardware
- quantum computing stacks and their emulation (especially trapped-ion quantum computers)

## Jan Głowacki

PhD studentI am a PhD student at the Center for Theoretical Physics, Polish Academy of Sciences (Warsaw). My PhD supervisor is Prof. Marek Kuś. I am interested in a variety of topics in theoretical and mathematical physics, including:

The main topics of my current research are:

- relational approaches to quantum theory (quantum reference frames and beyond)
- reconstructions of (relational) quantum theory
- statistical (quantum) physics with Bayesian inference
- General Relativity as as emergent framework
