Biography


After undertaking undergraduate studies at the University of Waikato and an MSc at the University of Auckland, I completed my PhD at the Australian National University. After postdoctoral positions at the CSIRO and ANU I started work as lecturer at Otago in 2007.


Role

Chair of the Physics Department IT committee

The main theme of my research has been studying how defects and impurities
in solids interact with light. In particular I have investigated the
benefits of rare earth ion dopants as alternatives to trapped atomic
systems for quantum information processing applications. I am also investigating applications of these systems outside quantum information; in particular the optical detection of ultrasound for a new way of biomedical imaging.

Studying rare-earths for quantum information has been a very fertile area and has resulted my publishing nine journal articles in Physical Review Letters and two in Nature.
