Postdoctoral research fellow


BSc in Physics, University of Leeds
Ph.D. in Engineering, University of Cambridge

Undergraduate Teaching

I was a supervisor/tutor of engineering undergraduates at the University of Cambridge for 3 years. I have taught 1st year Mathematics and Computing and 3rd year Photonic Systems.

Research Interests

My research interests lie in the development of the underlying quantum technologies that compose the foundation of the quantum internet, to a state of practical importance. In Oxford my work is focused on high-speed, high-fidelity entangling gates in ion traps while during my Ph.D. I was working on the development of novel systems for long distance quantum communications. I am quite interested in the merging of the two technologies for the development of quantum computing secure networks.
