Research

I have been lucky enough to work full time for four internationally renowned research groups in the field of experimental quantum physics:

Back to Quantum optics @NBI:
2016 – Present: Assistant Professor
I now work at the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen, the birth place of modern quantum mechanics. Here I am working on developing novel multi-photon sources using solid-state emitters. You can read more about the group I work in here.


Quantum electronics @UNSW:
2014 – 2016: Postdoctoral Research Fellow
In 2014 I left photonics in a bid to ‘broaden my horizons’ and joined the group of Prof. Michelle Simmons at the University of New South Wales. Here I worked on controlling the states of single donor atoms in a silicon. My main research result in this field is the controlled coupling of two electrons confined to phosphorus atoms in silicon. 


Quantum optics @Oxford:
2011: Visiting Researcher
In 2011 I was a visiting researcher at University of Oxford in the Ultrafast Quantum Optics group of Prof. Ian Walmsley. I remember a warm summer, in an exciting research group, at a great university, in a wonderful city. My work there resulted in this paper on multi-photon interference, a prerequisite to the work we carried out on BosonSampling later that year. 


Quantum optics @UQ:
2012 – 2014: Postdoctoral Research Fellow
2008 – 2012: PhD Student
I entered the academic world through the quantum technology lab at The University of Queensland under the supervision of Prof. Andrew White. In this field I am best known for my work on quantum walks and multi-photon quantum interference. My research highlights include:

    – First demonstration of a photonic quantum walk in space
    – Multi-photon quantum walks in 2-dimensional waveguide arrays
    – Observation of topological states in quantum walks
    – First demonstration of BosonSampling


Here is a selection of my conference level talks:
