I am an experimental physicist involved in research pertaining to the physical implementation of quantum information protocols using single photons. Much of my work has been multidisciplinary, drawing expertise from various fields such as semiconductor physics and fabrication, microscopy, low-temperature physics, photonics, optics, and quantum optics. In the past my work has focused on developing novel sources of single photons based on semiconductor quantum dots. At present I am a member of Prof. Geoff Pryde's Quantum Optics and Information lab in the Centre for Quantum Dynamics at Griffith University. My research efforts include implementing optical quantum logic using heralded single-photon states, and the study of the foundations of quantum mechanics.
