Hi! I'm Joshua Viszlai, a Computer Science PhD student at the University of Chicago advised by Prof. Fred Chong. I previously completed my B.S. in Computer Science and minor in Physics at Georgia Tech.

My research aims to bridge the gap between current quantum devices and fault-tolerant quantum computation. I'm primarily focused on designing quantum error correction schemes in the context of today's physical systems. Although I'm also interested in quantum algorithms and near-term applications of quantum computers. My work is a part of EPiQC (Enabling Practical-scale Quantum Computation), an NSF Expedition in Computing. Previously at Georgia Tech I worked on classical compilers, computer architecture, and robotics.
