Research Fellow


I am a Theoretical Physicist working at the intersection of fundamental physics and quantum estimation theory to unlock the full potential of quantum technologies. I have now moved to the University of Surrey, but continue collaborating with the Quantum Non-equilibrium group at Exeter. 

For a complete overview of my profile, visit my personal website here.

Research interests

  • Quantum technologies: thermometry, interferometry, sensing networks, etc
  • Quantum foundations and estimation theory

For a complete list of my research works, see my ORCID iD 0000-0002-8193-8273
