I have just moved to the Center for Quantum Technologies in Singapore, after spending the last 3 years as a Merton College JRF in Theoretical Physics and a Senior Research Fellow in Oxford University Department of Materials. My research focuses largely on theoretical aspects of quantum information processing. In particular I am interested in spin networks, measurement based computation, cryptography and computational complexity.

comment What can the D-Wave quantum computer do?
@episanty: That is true of every problem in PSPACE. It might be that P=PSPACE, but we're pretty sure it's not true. But again, the only real evidence is that we can't prove equality.

comment Higgs mass and the hierarchy problem
I fixed your latex. You can include it yourself by enclosing it in dollar signs (like an inline equation in latex).

comment partial trace with sparse matrices
In general, a partial trace of a sparse matrix does not yield a sparse matrix, so you will get only limited improvement by using the fact that the matrix is sparse (maybe a factor of d/s).

comment Advice on doing physics under the umbrella of mathematics and the converse
@Moshe: Maybe. I've no idea what the true distribution is like. My sample size is relatively small (10 or 12) and is not all that geographically diverse.
