<h5>Quantum computing, complexity theory, discrete mathematics</h5>
<p>Kuperberg is interested in finding new quantum algorithms or complexity barriers for candidate problems for quantum and classical algorithms, as well as geometric properties of quantum error correcting codes and quantum entanglement problems. My work has had applications to post-quantum cryptography, which is the effort to find and designate new standards of public key encryption that are resistant to quantum attacks.</p>

https://cs.ucdavis.edu/directory/david-doty
<h5>Molecular computing, DNA nanotechnology, distributed computing</h5>
<p>Doty is interested in DNA nanotechnology and molecular self-assembly. The Doty group focuses on theoretical models that elucidate the fundamental logical and physical limits to computation by such molecular systems. These efforts inform the design of nanoscale devices that compute, self-assemble and otherwise autonomously control themselves, with long-term application goals such as detection of extremely small concentrations of analytes, smart drug delivery and nanoscale transport robots.</p>
