Omid is a first-year Ph.D. student in the Quantum Research Group of Stellenbosch University in South Africa, under the supervision of Prof. Francesco Petruccione and Prof Ilya Sinayskiy (UKZN).
He is interested in investigating Quantum Effects in Biological Systems like the Radical Pair Mechanism (RPM) or Vibrationally Assisted Tunneling, from the Open Quantum System approach and its implication in living systems, he is interested to simulate these systems in both classical computers using conventional packages like QuTiP (in Python), QuantumOptics.jl (in Julia) and also doing his simulation on Quantum Computer like IBM devices.
He is also interested in Quantum Computing for Quantum Chemistry calculations.
He has a Master’s degree in Theoretical Nuclear and Particle physics from Isfahan University of Technology, Iran.
He is a Physics tutor with over 8 years of experience.
