Harrison is currently working at Q-Ctrl at the University of Sydney with Chief Investigator Michael Biercuk.
During his PhD, Harrison's research focused on using Beryllium ions in a Penning trap provide a promising architecture for quantum simulation of many-body problems belonging to an otherwise intractable class. This involved a wide variety of infrastructure-development projects. These included the design, construction and testing of a Penning trap; development of high-power 313 nm laser system for state preparation, cooling and entanglement and logic operations; development of imaging system, supporting fiber optics capabilities and supporting hardware for feedback and experimental control.
