Abstract:   The vision of a quantum Internet, a global network capable of transmitting quantum information, brings with it the promise of implementing quantum applications such as quantum key distribution (QKD), quantum computation, quantum sensing, clock synchronization, quantum-enhanced measurements, and many others. Developing such an infrastructure needs to address major challenges, such as channel and operational noise, limited quantum information lifetime, and long-distance transmission losses. In this talk, I will present my work that tackles these major challenges and designs performance benchmarks, architectures, and resource allocation policies for first-generation quantum networks.

Bio:  Dr. Nitish Kumar Panigrahy is currently a postdoctoral researcher at NSF ERC Center for Quantum Networks, working jointly with Prof. Leandros Tassiulas (Yale University) and Prof. Don Towsley (University of Massachusetts Amherst). He earned his Ph.D. degree in Computer Science at the University of Massachusetts Amherst in 2021. Nitish’s research interests lie in modeling, optimization, and performance evaluation of networked systems with applications to the Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing, content delivery, and quantum information networking.
