Joran van Apeldoorn investigated whether quantum computers can solve convex optimisation problems faster. To answer this question, he considered a few different types of problems encountered in convex optimisation, including linear programming and semidefinite programming.

Van Apeldoorn will defend his thesis A Quantum View on Convex Optimization at the University of Amsterdam. His PhD research was supervised by Prof. Ronald de Wolf and Prof. Monique Laurent.
