Research lines: Quantum information science and Quantum algorithms
Jop Briët is a senior researcher at CWI. He obtained his PhD from CWI and the University of Amsterdam in 2011 under supervision of Prof. Harry Buhrman, after which he was a post-doc at CWI and the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at New York University on an NWO Rubicon Fellowship. For his PhD thesis he was awarded the Stieltjes prize and the Andreas Bonn medal. His work is currently supported by an NWO Veni grant.
Briët is broadly interested in mathematics and theoretical computer science. His research includes quantum information theory, coding theory and approximation algorithms, and often applies techniques from the local theory of Banach spaces and discrete mathematics.
