Samuel Jaques
University of Oxford | Department of Materials


I am a DPhil student in the Department of Materials at the University of Oxford. My supervisors are Simon Benjamin and Christophe Petit.

I recently finished a paper with André Schrottenloher about finding "golden collisions" with a quantum computer where memory can be maintained for free, but access has a linear cost. I summarized most of the results on Twitter.

My interests are cryptography (especially post-quantum), cost models for quantum computers, and quantum algorithms.

I have an MMath from the University of Waterloo, which Alfred Menezes and Michele Mosca co-supervised. I have a B.Sc. in math from the University of Regina.
