Chinmay Nirkhe

I am a PhD student at UC Berkeley in the EECS Department studying CS Theory. I am advised by Umesh Vazirani. I got my Bachelor's in 2017 from Caltech where I worked on research problems with Thomas Vidick.

My research interests are in theoretical computer science centered around quantum information and hardness of approximation. Some of my favorite research topics are the qPCP Conjecture, Multiprover Interactive Proofs, and Quantum Supremacy.

For an introduction to the current state of affairs in quantum computing, I recommend this manuscript by John Preskill.
