Animesh recognised as an outstanding reviewer
Animesh has been recognised as an outstanding reviewer for the New Journal of Physics in the IOP's 2017 Reviewer Awards. The Outstanding Reviewer awards seek to recognise excellent reviewers for quality, quantity and timeliness of their reviews which contribute to the peer-review process.
Max Marcus joins as a postdoc
Max joins us to work on quantum biology and energy transport, having completed his DPhil in Physical and Theoretical Chemistry at the University of Oxford
Shibdas joins us from NUS where he was a postdoc in Mankei Tsang's group, having previously completed his PhD at the University of New South Wales, Australia. His primary research interest is in quantum measurement and control theory.
Samuele and Jamie start their PhDs with us this week. Samuele joins us from the University of Turin. He will be working on quantum verification and is supported by the UK Quantum Technology hub NQIT. Jamie joins us from Aberystwyth University. He will be working on quantum-enhanced sensing, and is supported by the CDT on Diamond Technologies. Luke will continue his BSc project work in quantum biology on to an MSc with us.
Theodoros worked on his PhD with Elham Kashefi at the University of Edinburgh's School of Informatics. He completed his PhD is early 2016, and his specialisation lies in the area of verification methods for quantum computation.
George completed his PhD from Oxford with Simon Benjamin and Andrew Briggs in 2014. He then spent a year at NTT in Japan. He was awarded the very presitgious 1851 Research Fellowship in 2015.
Dominic Branford joins as PhD student
Dominic finished his undergraduate degree in Oxford, where he did a Master's project in quantum optics and quantum information.
