Juan Carrasquilla is a Canada CIFAR AI Chair at the Vector Institute and an adjunct assistant professor at the department of Physics & Astronomy at the University of Waterloo
Carrasquilla’s research interests are at the intersection of condensed matter physics, quantum computing, and machine learning. He combines quantum Monte Carlo simulations and machine learning techniques to analyze the collective behaviour of quantum many-body systems. Applications of these ideas include the identification of phases of matter in numerical simulations and experiments, as well as the validation of near-term quantum devices and quantum simulations of condensed matter systems.
