Jonathan Matthews - Lecturer
Jonathan Matthews is a newly appointed Lecturer in the School of Physics and an academic member of the Centre for Quantum Photonics, affiliated to Bristol’s recently launched QETLabs. He is a co-investigator on the £29M multi-institution Quantum Technology Hub in Quantum Enhance Imaging, QuantIC. He is co-investigator on a US Army Research Office project to develop new ways to characterise quantum computers and he was awarded, in April of 2015, a 5 year EPSRC early career fellowship to support his research activities.
His research interests are in harnessing quantum states of light to reach the ultimate limits in precision measurement and sensing and also to use quantum states of light to simulate other quantum systems, such as coherent transport phenomena using quantum walks.
Outside of the lab, he is a keen swimmer (in both swimming pools and local rivers), supports Bristol Rugby, has an interest in classic film, enjoys the outdoors (in particular the coast) and continues to struggle learning to surf British waters.
