Nora is a postgraduate student at Macquarie University and the University of Vienna currently undertaking a cotutelle PhD with Associate Professor Gabriel Molina-Terriza and Professor Anton Zeilinger.

Her research deals with the interaction of light with metallic nanostructures and the phenomenon of optical activity. Within quantum optics, the focus lies on entangled photon pairs produced by spontaneous parametric down-conversion and on parameter estimation.

Nora has worked on advancing our understanding and control of photon-pair sources. Most recently, she has conducted a proof of principle metrology experiment in which quantum correlations are used as a resource for measuring nano scatterer properties.
