Jordi Mur Petit
Postdoctoral Research Assistant & College Lecturer
I'm a Research Assistant at the Quantum Systems Engineering group, University of Oxford, and College Lecturer in Physics at Keble College.
I am a theoretical physicist working at the interface between cold quantum matter (cold atoms and molecules), quantum information theory, and many-body physics. I develop novel ideas and protocols to realize quantum tasks with AMO devices, and I also design new applications of QI ideas for the advancement of atomic and molecular physics.
