CQC2T logo

The Centre for Quantum Computation and Communication Technology was established as an Australian Research Council (ARC) Centre of Excellence in 2011, and renewed for a further 7 years in 2018. (It succeeds earlier ARC -funded Centres going back to 2000.) It now research programs at eight Australian Universities: UNSW, Melbourne, ANU, Griffith, Queensland, RMIT, and UTS. I am Node Manager of the Griffith effort. This comprises three Programs: Griffith University hosts two programs, a Quantum Information Theory Program headed by me, and an experimental Optical Quantum Information Program headed by Prof. Geoff Pryde, and an experimental Integrated Quantum Photonics Program headed by Assoc. Prof. Mirko Lobino.

My Theory Program supports wide-ranging theoretical research in quantum information, underpinning both quantum communication and quantum computation, and uncovering new implications and applications of the quantum information perspective. For more information see the Program Page on the CQC2T website.

New PhD students interested in studying in my group are welcome. Scholarships are available for domestic and overseas students with 1st Class Honours or equivalent (typically >80% in the 4th or higher year of tertiary studies, including a research project equivalent to at least one semester of full time study). In addition, all domestic students in CQD obtaining an Australian government award will be given a top-up for 3 years. Please contact me if you are interested.
