HI, I'M LANA
I'm a 19 year old that's really passionate about figuring out all of the universe's secrets. My research interests primarly lie in foundational physics. I hope to one day do work in foundational quantum theory or particle physics.
What I'm doing now:
Completing my undergrad studies at the Universty of Waterloo, where I'm majoring in Mathematical Physics.
Where I've been:
University of Ottawa | Undergraduate Researcher
I worked under Dr. Ebrahim Karimi researching orbital angular momentum of photons and how they can be used for higher-dimensional quantum communication.
Institute for Quantum Computing | Quantum Optics and Outreach Assistant
I worked on spreading the word about quantum and developing quantum optical experiments. Namely, I built a Quantum Eraser experiment using single photons.
Quantum Open Source Foundation | Volunteer
Volunteering for QOSF as a core member to assisst in the development and running of their Quantum Mentorship Program in which we pair industry/academia experts and QC enthusiasts up and have them work on an open-source project together.
Bank of Canada | QC Research Assistant
I investigated the application of quantum computing in finance for both near-term and future use.
Some stuff I've done:
Quantum State Tomography Python Library
During my time at uOttawa, a lot of my work was focused on quantum state tomography. I built a library that is able to perform QST on n qudits. [Github Link]
Quantum Natural Gradient Descent for VQEs
QAOA for Binary Clustering
Built a simple QAOA model that is able to categorize data into one of two categroies by solving a Max-Cut problem, and compared its performance to the classical k-means clustering algorithm. [Github Link]
