Ashley Montanaro's homepage
I'm an EPSRC Early Career Research Fellow in the Computer Science department of the University of Bristol.
I'm a member of the Theory and Algorithms and Quantum Computation & Information research groups.
Unfortunately I do not have any funding to support summer students or interns.
"It is difficult to give an idea of the vast extent of modern mathematics. This word 'extent' is not the right one: I mean extent crowded with beautiful detail  not an extent of mere uniformity such as an objectless plain, but of a tract of beautiful country seen at first in the distance, but which will bear to be rambled through and studied in every detail of hillside and valley, stream, rock, wood and flower. But, as for everything else, so for a mathematical theory  beauty can be perceived but not explained."
— Arthur Cayley^{1} (1883)
Research interests
My main research interests are in the theory of quantum computing. I'm interested in all areas of the subject, but particularly quantum algorithms and computational complexity, as well as quantum query and communication complexity. I'm also interested in classical algorithms and computational complexity.

Teaching
In Spring 2015 I am teaching Advanced Quantum Information Theory, a unit for the Centre for Doctoral Training in Quantum Engineering.
In the 20132014 academic year I taught Data Structures and Algorithms (COMS21103) and Theory of Computation (COMS11700).
