Dr. Christina Giarmatzi

Christina completed her PhD under the supervision of Dr Fabio Costa, Professor Gerard Milburn and Professor Andrew White at the University of Queensland.

One of the aims of her PhD was to further the understanding of causality in a multipartite scenario which took into account a dynamical causal order of the events. Several mathematical tools were developed to probe situations with indefinite causal order. Part of the thesis was about causal models describing the events that take place on quantum systems, and developing the first algorithm that discovers the causal model for quantum events, from data taken from each event.

Since July 2017 she is a postdoctoral research fellow under a grant from the Templeton Foundation, still circling around the concept of causality and delving into machine learning.
