Griffith University
BSc (Honours), PhD, University of Queensland

Prof. Wiseman is a theoretical quantum physicist. Following his PhD (1992-4) with Gerard Milburn, he worked at Auckland with Dan Walls FRS, before returning to UQ with an ARC Fellowship. He moved to Griffith as a QEII Fellow in 1999, gaining a Federation Fellowship in 2004. He has been Director of the Centre for Quantum Dynamics there since 2007.

Howard is best known for his pioneering work on continuous quantum measurement theory and its application in quantum feedback control. He has also made seminal contributions in adaptive quantum measurements. In 2010, Cambridge published Quantum Measurement and Control, the first comprehensive text on this topic, which he co-authored with Milburn. More recently, his formalisation of EPR-steering, with application in one-sided device-independent Quantum Key Distribution, has been very influential.

Howard has over 220 refereed journal papers including 47 in the Science and Nature suites of journals, Physical Review X, and Physical Review Letters. These have garnered more than 10,000 citations. He has four sole-authored invited commentaries in Nature and two popular pieces on quantum physics on The Conversation website with more than 250,000 readers each.
