Centre Executive, Professor of Physics, Griffith University

Qualification: BSc (Honours I and Medal), UQ; PhD, ANU

After postdoctoral and research fellowship positions at Montana State University and the University of Queensland, Geoff joined Griffith University at the beginning of 2006, where he established the Quantum Optics and Information Laboratory. He is the Deputy Director of Griffith University’s Centre for Quantum Dynamics.

Geoff has substantial research experience in the areas of experimental quantum optics and quantum information, and coherent dynamics of ions in solids. He demonstrated the first all-optical controlled-NOT gate, measurement scaling at the Heisenberg limit of precision, heralded noiseless amplification of quantum states, and has extended his quantum optics research to numerous quantum information and quantum measurement problems.

Geoff is investigating optical resources for quantum information processing, quantum communications, quantum measurement and other quantum technologies.
