## Post-docs

**Shane Mansfield**

I am interested in the application of structural and logical methods from mathematics and theoretical computer science to physics. Much of my work focusses on behaviours which are available to quantum systems but provably unachievable with classical systems such as nonlocality, contextuality and ψ-ontology. I am particularly concerned with developing general approaches to treating these phenomena and understanding how to systematically exploit them to obtain advantages over classical systems in information theoretic tasks, computational power, security or otherwise.

**Francesco Arzani**

My work has mostly been devoted to quantum information processing with systems described by infinite-dimensional Hilbert spaces, also known as continuous-variable systems. In particular, I am interested in the realisation of quantum computation and communication protocols with existing technology, especially in the quantum optics setting.

## PHD Students

**Mathieu Bozzio**

I am currently looking into improving quantum money protocols' practicality and providing the first experimental demonstration of an "on-the-fly" quantum credit card. The implementation and security proof takes into account the characteristics of quantum memories, and the next step is to investigate how this setup can be coupled to a state-of-the art quantum memory.

**Ulysse Chabaud**

I am working on various topics related to quantum computational supremacy. I investigate the necessary ressources for quantum advantage and how it translates to foundational questions. I am also developing applications for the upcoming quantum networks. Apart from that, I am interested in quantum information theory applied to quantum field theories.

**Niraj Kumar**

I am third year PhD student working on quantifying resources for quantum communication protocols (Equality, Euclidean Distance, Hidden matching to name a few) and drawing a comparison with their classical analogue. The work also involves experimental implementation to try to demonstrate quantum superiority. My other interests include quantum games, complexity.

**Rawad Mezher**

I am working on developing sources for pseudorandom unitaries which provably mimic genuinely (Haar) random unitaries up to a certain precision. My goal is to generate there pseudorandom unitaries in the framework of MBQC in the simplest way possible. I also aim at studying applications of these unitaries to various fields such as cryptography, thermodynamics and black hole physics.

**Luka Music**

Quantum cryptography, secure multiparty quantum computing.

**Luis Trigo Vidarte**

**Shouvik Ghorai**

Quantum information and computation, quantum cryptography and foundations of quantum mechanics.

**Victor Roman Rodriguez**

I am interested in the experimental realization of Quantum Communications in space. In particular, I work with Continuous Variables Quantum Key Distribution (CVQKD) and my PhD is also funded by Thales Alenia Space for the use of the cryptographic protocols using satellites. In parallel, I am also investigating the creation of novel quantum states of light with properties that can be potentially applied in a broader area of quantum information protocols as well as in quantum computing.

**Pierre-Emmanuel Emeriau**

I am broadly interested in identifying and understanding quantum advantages over classical computation - specifically related to contextuality - arising in quantum systems. More precisely, my work focuses on a new version of contextuality introduced by Shane Mansfield which provides new frameworks for witnessing quantum advantages.

**Simon Neves**

**Robert Ivan Booth**

I am interested in mathematical frameworks for quantum computation in atypical Hilbert spaces such as those which arise as spaces of functions over groups. My hope is to study gate models as well as MBQC protocols for (some of) these spaces and the algebraic problems that arise therein. I also have a soft spot for categorical methods in quantum mechanics and would like to see if graphical languages similar to the ZX-calculus can be defined in some of these spaces. My current work focuses on continuous variables quantum computation as a base case for these kinds of constructions.

**Federico Centrone**

My research interests are mostly concerned in applications of quantum mechanics from a

theoretical and computational point of view, although I wish to be involved in their physical and

experimental realizations. Nonetheless, I am also interested in the foundations of the theory, the

emergence of classicality and complexity from elementary quantum systems.

**Clément Meignant**

**Léo Colisson**

**Nathan Shettell**

I am working on various aspects concerning quantum metrology and quantum sensing. Currently, I am exploring two different areas. The first is applications of quantum sensing such as synchronized atomic clocks and gravimeters. The latter is building a bridge between quantum metrology and other (relevant) areas of quantum information.

**Raja Yehia**

I'm working on secure delegated quantum computing, modeling of quantum communication and computation protocols and more broadly on finding and analysing applications for the Quantum Internet.

## Alumni

**Tom Douce**

Broadly speaking, I work on Continuous Variables quantum computing. I try to identify the non-classical resources that lead to quantum advantages. I also wish to establish connections between physical models and computer science tools.

**Adeline Orieux**

I am working on several discrete-variable quantum optics experiments at Telecom wavelength, spanning from photon-pair sources developpement to quantum cryptography protocols and communication complexity protocols.
