Dr. Nathan Walk

I completed my undergraduate degrees at the University of Queensland followed by a PhD in the group of Tim Ralph as a part of CQC2T, primarily focused on security proofs for quantum key distribution, quantum amplifiers, entanglement distillation protocols and relativistic quantum information. Subsequently I spent a year as a postdoctoral researcher in the group of Howard Wiseman at Griffith University, working primarily on EPR steering, entropic uncertainty relations and device-independent quantum communication. From June 2015 I worked as a post-doctoral researcher in the group of Jonathan Barrett in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Oxford as part of the Networked Quantum Information Technologies Hub of the UK National Quantum Technology Programme. In 2017 I was awarded a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship entitled Certifying Large-scale Quantum Information Technologies which I took up in June 2018, based in the group of Prof. Jens Eisert in the Dahlem Center for Complex Quantum Systems at the Freie Universität in Berlin.
