Background

Bio

I have spent most of my research career studying Quantum Physics, in particular, the Dynamics of Quantum Entanglement in Open Quantum Systems and the Estimation methods of Quantum States. My research expertise includes quantum optics, quantum information and computation theory and quantum metrology.

Programming is one of the foundations of my work as a researcher. I mainly code in C++ and from there I can easily navigate to other languages like Python or other programming based software like Matlab, R or Wolfram Mathematica. To me programming is Maths at its best, is precision, efficiency and elegance.

I have also taught, tutored, lectured, coached and supported students for more than 15 years. I have done it privately and within different organisations. To me, learning is a process to (re)create our models of nature, is a (re)discovery process, an exploration that allows us to acquire the skills to link new concepts, theories and ideas with our own knowledge. My beliefs about learning extend to my teaching. I am convinced that my role as a teacher is the role of a guide who helps myself and others to make effective use of the little time that we have to explore.
