Dr. Thomas Brougham

I’m a Research Fellow in the Quantum Theory group.  I completed my PhD at Strathclyde in 2008.  Since then I have worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Czech Technical institute in Prague and the University of Strathclyde, before moving to the University of Glasgow.

I’m a theoretical physicist working within the fields of quantum information and quantum optics.  In the past I have worked on topics such as quantum measurement theory, quantum state transfer and quantum key distribution (QKD).  Recently, I have been working with experimental groups in the USA on how to experimentally implement high-dimensional QKD.
