I am a Research Fellow at the School of Mathematical Sciences and the Centre for the Mathematics and Theoretical Physics of Quantum Non-Equilibrium Systems of the University of Nottingham. I am interested in exploring the fundamental limits on the accuracy of temperature measurements on cold quantum systems (quantum thermometry). Understanding these bounds will ultimately assist in the design of more precise thermometry experiments at ultra-cold temperatures. I am also active in quantum thermodynamics, and work towards the optimisation of nano-refrigerators that can be instrumental for upcoming quantum-technological applications.
I currently coordinate a UK network on the thermodynamics of open quantum systems (Nottingham-Manchester-Exeter-London-Belfast); it meets periodically in the so-called Open Quantum Meetings, funded by the London Mathematical Society. I also participate in a collaborative research project on the thermodynamics of Gaussian open quantum systems with colleagues from São Paulo, Birmingham, and Nottingham, funded by FAPESP: The São Paulo Research Foundation.
If you want to know more about quantum thermometry, why not check out our topical review on the subject? I have also co-edited the most comprehensive collection of advances on quantum thermodynamics for the book "Thermodynamics in the Quantum Regime: Fundamental Aspects and New Directions", which gives a broad overview of the field.
