Interested in joining the group?
A number of Hons, MSc and PhD projects are available:
Honours projects
  • Photonic quantum entanglement (exp)
  • Photonic quantum interference (exp)
  • Plasmonic biosensing (exp)
  • Quantum networks (theory)
  • Quantum graph theory (theory)
  • Quantum graphs and randomness (theory)

Students should contact me before June 2022 in order to apply for one of these projects in 2022. An experimental project may be reformulated into a theory project and vice versa. Contact me to discuss further if you would like to do this. A short 2-3 week internship can also be organised for the interested student to explore any of the above topics before deciding.

MSc projects
  • Quantum state tomography
  • Single-photon generation
  • Quantum random number generation

Students should contact me before June 2022 in order to apply for one of these projects in 2023.

PhD projects

Contact me to discuss PhD projects. Students should get in touch before June 2022 in order to apply for a PhD in 2023.
