Natalie is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Physics at Duke University affiliated with the Nuclear Theory Group and the Duke Quantum Center. She has been inspired by the numerical simulation of fundamental physics and has been intrigued by a new perspective using quantum-based computation—simulating many-body quantum systems with quantum systems. Excited by recent progress in experimental realizations as well as the great success of non-perturbative techniques developed by the nuclear and particle physics communities over recent decades for studying the interactions of quarks and gluons, Natalie pursues the simulation of field theories leveraging quantum devices. With this research, she hopes to unravel an answer to the basic question: is a quantum computer sufficient to efficiently simulate our natural world?
