Background

Bio

I am a theoretical physicist exploring the fundamental nature of the quantum world from a quantum information perspective.

My research expertise includes quantum information theory, foundations of quantum mechanics, quantum atom-optics, probability and decision theory, causal networks, philosophy of physics, among other topics.

After my PhD at the University of Queensland in 2008 I have been obtained an ARC Postdoctoral Research Fellowship, undertaken at Griffith University, followed by a Discovery Early-Career Researcher Award at The University of Sydney. I have spent a year as a Visiting Scholar at Oxford University and I am currently a Senior Lecturer at Griffith University, in sunny Queensland, Australia, partly funded by a Large Grant from the Foundational Questions Institute (FQXi).

I have over 40 peer-reviewed publications including prestigious journals such as Nature Physics and Physical Review Letters. My work has been featured in international media, including The New York Times, Nature News and New Scientist. My publications have gathered over 1700 citations, with an h-index of 20. I have organised three international conference on the foundations of quantum mechanics, and have been invited to present my work in conferences on all continents.

I am a Founding Editor for Quantum, a free and open-access journal for quantum science, providing a new model for scientific publication. I am a member of the Australian Institute of Physics and the Optical Society of America.

During my undergraduate and Master degrees, I worked as an experimentalist in the fields of biophysics and atomic collisions, leading to several publications. I have also worked as a technologist for the Institute of Radioprotection and Dosimetry at the National Nuclear Energy Commission, developing software and systems for external radiation dosimetry.
