I am a postdoctoral researcher at QuTech at the Delft University of Technology. My work is focused on developing the network and software architecture for quantum networks. I am part of Stephanie Wehner’s Quantum Software group which places me within the Quantum Internet and Networked Computing Roadmap at QuTech and the Quantum Internet Alliance funded by the European Union’s Quantum Flagship program.
I did my MSci and PhD in quantum physics, but after graduating from Oxford I worked as a software engineer for two years in the network software team at Metaswitch. This has placed me in the unusual position of having experience in both computer networking and quantum physics which is how I ended up at QuTech. Through my brief stint in industry I have also acquired an interest in purely classical topics such as software-defined networking and programming languages like Rust.
