tl;dr: I'm from Nottingham and have some letters after my name
I was born in Nottingham, England while "Living Doll" performed by Cliff Richard and The Young Ones was number one on the UK Singles Chart. In spite of this, after eighteen years of living in Nottingham I moved to London to begin an undergraduate degree in Physics at Imperial College London, followed by a PhD in Quantum Information at University College London. My PhD supervisor was Dan Browne and my thesis was on the connections between quantum non-locality and measurement-based quantum computation.
After a short stint as a research assistant in the Department of Computer Science in Oxford in the Quantum Group, I moved to Barcelona to work as a postdoctoral researcher at ICFO-Institute of Photonic Sciences, in the group of Antonio Acín. After two years in Catalonia, I moved back to the Quantum Group in Oxford to work with Jonathan Barrett. Then I joined the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh to work in the group of Prof. Elham Kashefi as part of the Networked Quantum Information Technologies (NQIT) Hub. More recently I moved back to the University of Oxford, where I worked in the Department of Physics (in the group of Prof. Ian Walmsley), and again in the Department of Computer Science as part of the Quantum Group.
I am now a Lecturer in Computer Science at Goldsmiths, University of London where I lecture the first-year course Problem Solving for Computer Science, which is essentially an introduction to algorithms and data structures for those starting a computer science degree.
