Dr Alberto Peruzzo aims is to implement quantum-enhanced processors and sensors with capabilities beyond today’s computers and measurement systems.
Photonic quantum technologies; optical quantum information processing systems.
Dr Peruzzo’s research spans from engineering photonic quantum information and communication technologies to studying quantum effects in biological, chemical and physical systems. During his PhD and as a Royal Academy of Engineering Fellow at the University of Bristol, he pioneered the fields of integrated quantum photonics and photonic quantum simulations. Alberto comes to RMIT from the University of Sydney, where he established the Quantum Photonics Laboratory, now relocated to RMIT.
Dr Peruzzo has a strong publishing record with papers in journals such as Science, Nature Photonics and Nature Communications. He has secured national and international research funding totalling approx. AUS$9m, and was awarded an Australian Research Council (ARC) Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA) in 2014. Alberto was awarded a Vice-Chancellor's Senior Research Fellowship in 2014 and is aligned with the School of Engineering.
