Daniel Burgarth

Daniel graduated with a degree in Physics from the University of Freiburg in 2004. His Ph.D research at University College London until 2007 explored aspects of quantum state transfer in one-dimensional spin systems. He then moved to the ETH Zurich and Oxford University, where as a postdoc and JRF, he researched in the areas of quantum information and computations. In 2009, he was awarded an EPSRC Fellowship in Theoretical Physics, working in the area of Quantum Control and Estimation at Imperial College London. Daniel held several visiting fellowships at RIKEN and Waseda University, Tokyo, where he has ongoing collaborations about quantum system theory. He moved to Aberystwyth in August 2011, to take up his appointment as Lecturer in Mathematics and Physics. In 2019 he moved to the other side of the Bloch sphere as a Associate Professor and Future Fellow at Macquarie University, Sydney. In 2023 he completed the Hahn Echo to move to a Professorship at the FAU at Erlangen-Nürnberg.
