Solid State Spin Physics and Polarization-Engineered Nanophotonics for Quantum Technologies
I am a senior lecturer and former EPSRC Career Acceleration Fellow in the Centre for Quantum Photonics, in Physics and Electrical and Electronic Engineering. My research interests centre around the use of solid-state quantum emitters that interact with light, for quantum technology applications.
I am Principle Investigator and Co Investigator of several research grants which cover a range of research interests:
- EPSRC Quantum Technologies Fellow: "Project 1D QED" EP/N003381/1: a 5 year fellowship to create useable single photon sources and quantum photonic switching technology.
- PI of EPSRC Standard Grant "SPIN SPACE" EP/M024156/1, a collaboration with the University of Essex where we will combine single photon sources and semiconductor spin lasers in a multicore fibre platform.
"Waves" part of "Waves and Optics" course for the foundation Physics 1E/1P course.
