Alexei Kitaev Russian: Алексей Юрьевич Китаев; born August 26, 1963 is a Russian–American professor of physics at the California Institute of Technology and permanent member of the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics[1] He is best known for introducing the quantum phase estimation algorithm and the concept of the topological quantum computer[2] while working at the Landau Institute for Theoretical Physics For this work, he was awarded a MacArthur Fellowship in 2008 He is also known for introducing the complexity class QMA and showing that some local Hamiltonian problems are QMA-complete[3] Kitaev is also known for contributions to research on a model relevant to researchers of the AdS/CFT correspondence started by Sachdev and Ye; this model is known as the Sachdev-Ye-Kitaev model[4]

Kitaev was educated in Russia, receiving an MSc from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology 1986, and a PhD from the Landau Institute for Theoretical Physics 1989 He served previously as a researcher 1999–2001 at Microsoft Research, a research associate 1989–1998 at the Landau Institute and a professor at Caltech 2002–present[5]

Honors and awards

In 2008 Kitaev was awarded a MacArthur Fellowship In July 2012, he was an inaugural awardee of the Fundamental Physics Prize, the creation of physicist and internet entrepreneur, Yuri Milner[6] In 2015, he was jointly awarded the 2015 Dirac Medal by ICTP[7] In 2017, he was, together with Xiao-Gang Wen, the winner of the Oliver E Buckley Condensed Matter Prize[8]
