Aram Wettroth Harrow (born 1980) is a professor of physics in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Center for Theoretical Physics.[1]

Harrow works in quantum information science and quantum computing.[2] Together with Avinatan Hassidim and Seth Lloyd, he designed a quantum algorithm for linear systems of equations, which in some cases exhibits an exponential advantage over the best classical algorithms.[3] The algorithm has wide application in quantum machine learning.

He is a steering committee member of Quantum Information Processing (QIP),[4] the largest annual conference in the field of quantum computing. Harrow is a co-administrator of SciRate,[5] a free and open access scientific collaboration network. He also co-runs a blog, The Quantum Pontiff. His collaborators include Peter Shor and Charles H. Bennett.
