I graduated from Queens University Belfast in 2011 with an MSci in Applied Mathematics. My MSci project involved the study of anisotropy effects in the Pancharatnam-Berry Phase and entanglement, incorporating the Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction. I started my PhD at the University of St Andrews in Quantum Information in September 2011 under the supervision of Natalia Korolkova.
The subject of my research will be Quantum Information Processing (QIP) over continuous variables, focusing on indicators of non-classicality e.g. discord. Whether or not non-classical correlations are a useful and viable quantum resource is something which a largely open question. By looking at various counterintuitive protocols I intend to provide justification as to how fundamental discord actually is. Can it be linked to entanglement and if so, how can this is manipulated for the benefit of QIP.
