Payal Kaushik


Payal is part of Horizon's Science team.

She joins us after her Master's in Quantum Science and Technology from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), and her Bachelor's in Electronics and Communication Engineering from IIT Dhanbad. During her studies, she delved into a range of topics, namely quantum machine learning using variational quantum algorithms, quantum-inspired classical algorithms using tensor networks, and pulse programming on nuclear magnetic resonance system and nitrogen-vacancy center system. Her Master's thesis was dedicated to researching methods for state preparation of big data for quantum algorithms.

Outside of work, she finds joy in playing squash, listening to music, and exploring her artistic side through sketching and painting.
