I'm a Lecturer in the Computer Science department of the University of Bristol.
I'm a member of the Algorithms team within the Intelligent Systems Laboratory.
I'm also a member of the Quantum Computation & Information group.
News: Two postdoctoral positions available in the theory of quantum computation. Deadline 26 June.
Unfortunately I do not have any funding to support summer students or interns.
"It is difficult to give an idea of the vast extent of modern mathematics. This word 'extent' is not the right one: I mean extent crowded with beautiful detail  not an extent of mere uniformity such as an objectless plain, but of a tract of beautiful country seen at first in the distance, but which will bear to be rambled through and studied in every detail of hillside and valley, stream, rock, wood and flower. But, as for everything else, so for a mathematical theory  beauty can be perceived but not explained."
— Arthur Cayley^{1} (1883)
Research interests
My main research interests are in the theory of quantum computing. I'm interested in all areas of the subject, but particularly quantum algorithms and computational complexity, quantum query and communication complexity, and quantum walks. I'm also interested in classical algorithms and computational complexity.
