Selected Awards and Fellowships

Dr. William Munizzi

Postdoctoral Scholar


William joined the NarangLab in the Summer of 2024 as a Postdoctoral Scholar. His research surrounds mathematical aspects of quantum information and quantum gravity, with a primary focus on entanglement, quantum algorithms, and error correction. Additionally, he is interested in quantum magic and its implications for high-energy physics, dynamical decoupling and optimal control, computational complexity problems, error-mitigation schemes, and von Neumann algebras. Before joining the NarangLab, he received his Ph.D. in Physics from Arizona State University under Cynthia Keeler.

William is also passionate about science policy and outreach. He is Chair-Elect of the American Physical Society (APS) Forum on Graduate Student Affairs (FGSA), and Advocacy Champion for the APS GrassTops program. Outside of science he enjoys sports, travel, hiking, and cooking.
