Interests

I want to understand the ramifications of what it means to say we live in a quantum world. Currently I am interested in exploring the computational powers of physical theories within a broad operationally-defined framework, with a view to using this knowledge to better our understanding of quantum computation, and in exploring notions of causality in quantum theory in light of Bell's theorem. Starting in October 2016, I will be an EPSRC Doctoral Prize Postdoctoral Fellow at University College London. (Photo credit: Paul Tait)

Biography

I did my undergraduate studies in Mathematics and Theoretical Physics in Trinity College, Dublin, where I graduated in 2012. I then travelled to the Perimeter Institute in Canada, where I did my masters studies in Theoretical Physics as part of the Perimeter Scholars International program. Between 2013 and 2016, I undertook my doctoral studies at the University of Oxford, where I worked on areas related to Quantum Computation and Information. Starting in October 2016, I will be an EPSRC Doctoral Prize Postdoctoral Fellow at University College London.
