My main research interest is Quantum Computing and its applications to Machine Learning. In particular I focus on boolean optimization problems (QUBO, Ising model) that are solvable through Quantum Annealing on adiabatic quantum computers, but also on classical hardware. I developed an FPGA-based hardware solver for QUBO problems that employs a genetic algorithm.
