I research quantum information theory, quantum communication and cryptography, quantum imaging, quantum metrology and quantum hypothesis testing. I am interested in the foundations and applications of quantum mechanics.
I am proud of being a mathematical physicist. My research is powered by physical intuition and mathematical rigour. My goal is to drive change across the research community and the broader society. I ensure that by working in close collaboration with experimental physicists and engineers.
My journey started in the South of Europe. At very young age I decided “I want to become a scientist!”. I wanted to understand nature and travel the world. Physics, and then quantum information theory, was my choice of specialism. The postdoc life gave me an opportunity to travel, from Suburbia (Slovak Academy of Science, University of Camerino) to one of the global centers of Capitalism (MIT). In the last few years I have been around North England: the University of York and now the University of Sheffield.
