Ben Criger completed his PhD at the Institute for Quantum Computing in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. His current focus is in reducing error rates in quantum computation, taking advantage of the special characteristics of different physical devices to enhance the performance of small fault-tolerant computations.

Ben is also interested in studying quantum measurements in hardware, which is a constant source of difficult and fascinating problems.
