Short Bio

Daniel Stilck França holds an Inria Starting Faculty position hosted by the École Normale Supérieure de Lyon (ENS Lyon) and is a member of the QInfo team. He works in the fields of quantum information and computation with a focus on mathematical aspects. Before joining INRIA, Daniel was a postdoc at the Qmath group at the University of Copenhagen under the supervision of Matthias Christandl, and before that, he did his PhD at the Technical University Munich under the supervision of Michael Wolf.

Research interests

Daniel works on a variety of topics, including:

  • Learning of quantum states and channels.
  • Quantum functional inequalities and quantum Gibbs sampling.
  • Quantum algorithms, with a focus on algorithms for optimization.
  • Near-term quantum computing and its limitations.

Publications, talks and collaborations

You can find all of his papers on the arXiv and they are also listed on Google Scholar.

Daniel is happy to count on a wide network of collaborators and loves to travel to give talks. Click here for an interactive map with all of my collaborators and here for an interactive map of all the places where I have already given talks!

This website contains a record of recorded talks and lectures. Please refer to this page for a list

Please get in touch if you are interested in a postdoc or internship on any of the topics I am working on! We have several positions in our team!

Do not contact me at my former Copenhagen email address (dsfranca@math.ku.dk). I do not get emails sent there since 05.22!
