I am a research scientists at the Amazon Web Services Center for Quantum Computing, Pasadena (California). Previously I was a research fellow at the Center for Computational Quantum Physics of the Flatiron Institute (New York), and earned a PhD in physics at the University of Waterloo and the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics, Waterloo (Canada). I am the lead developer of PastaQ.jl.
We introduce PastaQ.jl, a computational toolbox for simulating, designing, and benchmarking quantum hardware. PastaQ relies on a tensor network description of quantum processes, built on top of ITensors.jl, a leading library for efficient tensor network algorithms. Leveraging recent developments in tensor network differentiation in ITensor, PastaQ provides access to a broad range of computational tools to tackle a tasks routinely encountered when building quantum computers.
