AI Marco Tomamichel is an Australian Research Council (ARC) Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA) fellow and Senior Lecturer with the Centre for Quantum Software and Information at the University of Technology Sydney. His research interests lie in the intersection of information theory, cryptography and quantum mechanics. His main focus is on the mathematical foundations of quantum information theory, for example the study of entropy and other information measures, as well as theoretical questions that arise in quantum communication and cryptography when the available resources are limited.
He has a particular interest in how small quantum devices, such as those that will be built in the Centre, can be used to outperform conventional hardware for information processing tasks such as communication over lossy optical fibre. He will collaborate with the Centre to develop protocols for manipulating information in small quantum devices as part of the quantum engines and instruments program.
