Robert Rand

Assistant Professor
Computer Science
University of Chicago

I am an Assistant Professor of Computer Science, part of the Programming Languages Research Group and the Chicago Quantum Exchange.

My main interest is in applying techniques from programming languages and formal verification to the domain of quantum computation. Two of my main projects are the QWIRE quantum circuit language (with Jennifer Paykin) and the VOQC verified optimizing compiler (with Kesha Hietala). I'm currently interested in verified optimization, error-correction, type systems and programming abstractions for quantum computing.

I'm working on a book on verified quantum programming! Email me if you'd like to use the book for your own course.

I'm currently looking for new students at all levels: Please reach out!
