I joined the Durham Atomic and Molecular Physics research section (Atmol), and the Joint Quantum Centre (JQC) Durham-Newcastle, in August 2014, with an EPSRC Established Career Fellowship on Hybrid Quantum and Classical Computation. Prior to Durham, I was part of the Quantum Information Group at the University of Leeds, where I held a Royal Society University Research Fellowship from 2004 to 2012. My first degree is from Oxford, and my PhD is from Edinburgh, in the area of Soft Condensed Matter, before I switched to quantum information theory via postdoctoral positions held at the University of Strathclyde and Imperial College London. Previous to my research career, I was active for over 10 years in global electronic networking and computer support in the voluntary sector.
