Biography

I'm currently a Staff Researcher at the International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL) in Braga, Portugal. I'm a member of the research group on Quantum and Linear-Optical Computation, which is led by Ernesto F. Galvão.

I obtained a DPhil in Computer Science from the University of Oxford in 2015, supervised by Samson Abramsky and Andreas Döring, and subsequently held postdoctoral positions at Oxford with Samson Abramsky (2015–19) and Edinburgh with Chris Heunen (2019–20), and a research fellowship at the Simons Institute, UC Berkeley (2017).
