I am a theoretical physicist working in the theory of quantum information and computation. My research to date has covered aspects of entanglement theory, architectures for quantum computing, quantum channel capacities, classical simulation of quantum systems, and the construction of local hidden variable models. For more details on my research, please see my research tab. We sometimes have PhD studentships available - whenever one is available I'll put a note on that research tab.
I have an MSci in Physics and Theoretical Physics from Cambridge University and a PhD in Quantum Information theory from Imperial College.
I am currently the director of the foundation programmes in Mathematics and Computing and Economics and Mathematics.
