Juan’s research interests are at the intersection of condensed matter physics, quantum computing, and machine learning. Juan 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. He completed his PhD in Physics at SISSA, the International School for Advanced Studies in Italy. He has since held positions as a Postdoctoral Fellow at Georgetown University, Visiting Research Scholar at Penn State University, and Postdoctoral Fellow at the Perimeter Institute. Most recently, Juan was a Research Scientist at D-Wave Systems Inc. in Burnaby, British Columbia and has recently joined the Vector Institute full-time.
