I'm a senior research Fellow in applied Mathematics at the University of Cambridge. The focus of my research is quantum information and computation and I am a member of the Centre for Quantum Information and Foundations. I also work as a research fellow at the Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research that applies cutting edge mathematics to real world problems.
Quantum computation and information is a vibrant field with many exciting questions still to be answered. My research is about the theory of quantum systems, architectures for quantum computers and quantum algorithms. I want to discover more about where the power of quantum computers comes from and what differentiates quantum and classical mechanics. To this end, I have worked on topics such as non-locality, entanglement theory, quantum state tomography and the geometry of quantum state space.
