Vivek Katial

Vivek’s project title is Instance Space Analysis of Quantum Optimisation Algorithms.”

His research is on investigating the strengths and weaknesses of Quantum Computing in solving combinatorial optimisation problems. By adapting the instance space analysis framework to the quantum context, he can identify how different quantum algorithms solve different problems. He is currently looking into vehicle routing (VRP) and constraint satisfaction (SAT) problems and solving them using both universal gate-based and adiabatic quantum algorithms.” OPTIMA Director Prof. Kate Smith-Miles supervise him.
