Takahiro grew up in Komaba, a small town in Tokyo known for its beautiful rice fields. During his undergraduate studies, he joined Professor Yasunobu Nakamura’s lab and started superconducting qubit research. He conducted his Ph.D. research under Dr. Peter Leek’s supervision at the University of Oxford, where he worked on scalable superconducting quantum computing architecture. Specifically, he worked on a novel compilation scheme for Hamiltonian simulation on an array of always-on coupled superconducting qubits using dynamical decoupling/refocusing sequences.
At Yale, Takahiro’s research focuses on fault-tolerant gates and algorithms for logical qubits encoded by bosonic quantum error-correcting codes
