Principal Investigator: Ernesto F. Galvão
Ernesto Galvão is the leader of the Quantum and Linear-Optical Computation group at the International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL) in Braga, north of Portugal. He holds degrees in physics from the University of Oxford (PhD), Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (Master’s), and Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro (Bachelor’s). He is currently on leave from the Instituto de Física of Fluminense Federal University (Brazil), where he has been faculty since 2006. In his research he studies different quantum computational models to identify and quantify resources capable of achieving a quantum advantage in information processing. He is particularly interested in photonic implementations of quantum computers, with a long track record of experimental/theoretical collaborations investigating light-based quantum information processors. His contributions to the project are on the theory side, especially in WP1, WP2, and WP6.
