Robust quantum computers, I believe, will lead the way of humanity into an exciting technological future. In particular, my interest in the link between quantum information and quantum condensed matter physics led me to topological quantum computation, where fault-tolerance in quantum memory is realized inherently, rather than by applying error-correction codes. In my master research project, I use numerical simulations to study an optimal design of the device (defined by geometry parameters or by presence of disorder, for example) that can potentially host more robust Majorana bound states – the building block for topological quantum computation.
