Lead of the Quantum Complexity Science Initiative
  • Short Biography

    I hold a permanent senior faculty position in 'Theoretical Quantum Physics' at the University of Malta and an appointment at the Institute of Quantum Computing, at the University of Waterloo. I was appointed the 'Shapiro Fellow' in Mathematical Physics at Pennsylvania State University and gave the accompanied lecture series on uniting the fields of quantum information with complexity science. I worked as an early research scientist at D-Wave Systems Inc. 'the quantum computing company' in Vancouver B.C. and completed an award winning doctoral thesis from the University of Oxford. My postdoctoral research was done mainly at Harvard University and at the University of Oxford. I am an elected member of the Foundational Questions Institute (FQXi). In terms of community service, I'm on the editorial boards for several journals, including New Journal of Physics.
