Leonardo Novo is a staff researcher at the Quantum and Linear-Optical Computation group at INL. One of his main interests is the study of how quantum devices may be used to speed-up challenging computational problems, such as the simulation of physical systems or other well-known problems in theoretical computer science. His research also focuses on fundamental aspects of the physics of many photons as well as on the application of quantum optical devices to quantum computation and simulation.
Leonardo has completed his PhD in 2017 in the University of Lisbon, with a thesis about quantum walks and its applications to quantum search algorithms and quantum transport problems. Afterwards he joined the Centre for Quantum Information and Communication at Université Libre de Bruxelles as a postdoctoral researcher, a position he held until he joined INL in August 2022.
