Jordi Mur Petit

Snr Postdoct. Researcher & College Lecturer (BNC & KBL)

I'm a Senior Research Assistant at the Quantum Systems Engineering group, University of Oxford, and College Lecturer in Physics at Brasenose and Keble colleges.

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.
