Nilin Abrahamsen

Graduate Student, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)

Nilin is a math PhD student at MIT supervised by Peter Shor and Jonathan Kelner. He will join UC Berkeley as a Simons quantum postdoctoral fellow and jointly as a postdoc in Lin Lin's group at Berkeley applied math. Nilin is interested in theoretical computational problems related to quantum mechanical systems, in particular the complexity of local Hamiltonians and algorithms for ground states of structured Hamiltonians.
