I am at the Quantum dynamics, optics and information (Q3) group at Faculty of Nuclear Sciences and Physical Engineering of Czech Technical University in Prague. I am currently working under the project "Quantum and classical random walks" which is supported by the Czech Science Foundation. We address various important open questions in the study of both quantum and classical random walks, focusing both on theoretical investigation and experimental results.

Sabancı University, İstanbul, Turkey
Oct 2016 - Mar 2017

I studied various subjects during this short-term time period in colloboration with Prof. Z. Gedik., including the Wigner function, mutually unbiased bases, non-classical correlations and an application of quantum permutation algoithm.
