The Quorum of Experts

Introducing our Quorum of Experts! The experts are the core of our platform both from an academic and commercial standpoint with a diverse array of experience - ranging from CEOs, University Professors, Directors, theoretical and experimental physicists. Our platform is positioning itself to be at the forefront of Quantum technologies!

We are still in the process of on-boarding more experts in the field, so expect this list to be significantly longer!

Dr. Canivell has a PhD in Physics from the University of Barcelona.

Dr. Jonathon P. Dowling

Dr. Jonathon Dowling is an Irish-American co-director of the Horace Hearne Institute for Theoretical Physics and a Hearne chair in Theoretical Physics at the Department of Physics and Astronomy, at the Louisiana State University. He is known for his work on quantum technology, particularly for exploiting quantum entanglement (in the form of a NOON state) for applications to quantum metrology, quantum sensing and quantum imaging. He has also made contributions to quantum information theory, the field of photonic crystals, and the foundations of quantum electrodynamics. Professor Dowling is also one of the founders of the US Government funded program in quantum information processing.

Dr. Christopher Ferrie

Dr. Chris Ferrie is a Senior Lecturer at the Centre for Quantum Software and Information at University of Technology Sydney. His research focuses on the characterisation, verification, and validation of quantum systems and devices, particularly on efficient and scalable quantum control techniques. The aim of his research is to aid in the design and realisation of practical quantum information processing devices, such as a quantum computer. He is also the author of a successful series of picture books about scientific concepts for babies and children.

Martin Laforest

Dr. Martin Laforest is the Senior manager for Scientific Outreach for the Institute for Quantum Computing (QIC) at the University of Waterloo. In that role, he establishes and nurtures relationships with private companies and venture capitalists, which have resulted in investments, partnerships and collaborations. He will soon be joining the company ISARA which develops quantum-safe security solutions.

Dr. José I. Latorre

Dr. José Ignacio Lattore is the CEO of Qilimanjaro, a Scientific Director at Entanglement Partners, a Director of the Centro de Ciencias de Benasque Pedro Pascual, Head of the Quantic Group at the Barcelona Supercoming Center and a Professor in Theoretical Physics at the University of Barcelona. His expertise ranges from particle physics, quantum information and artificial intelligence.

Dr. James Rabeau

Dr. James Rabeau is the CEO and Co-founder of quantum sensor company Lucigem and a Principle Program Manager at Station Q Sydney Microsoft. Dr. Rabeua has 20 years of combined experience in academic research and teaching, previously working as a Director at Deloitte Analytics and a Professor at Macquarie University. With commercial and technical expertise plus enterprise-wide strategy management, Dr. Rabeua brings valuable perspectives to his roles and a capacity to identify and apply insights to meet business needs.

Dr. Barry Sanders

Dr. Barry Sanders is a Professor of Physics, a Director for the Institute for Quantum Science and Technology in Calgary, Canada, a QianRen Chair Professor at the University of Science and Technology China, and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada. His research interests include: implementations of quantum information, evolutionary algorithms and swarm intelligence for quantum control and metrology, long-distance quantum key distribution, coherent quantum transport in protein complexes, non-linear quantum optics, and algorithmic quantum simulation.

Dr. Tom Stace

Dr. Tom Stace is a Professor of Physics and ARC Future Fellow at the University of Queensland. His research is largely focused on applying methods from quantum optics to solid state devices for use in quantum information applications, and more recently, on error correction protocols. He also works on high precision measurement with experimental colleagues at UWA, in a project whose ultimate aim is to contribute to the international definition of Boltzmann’s constant and some biophysics. Professor Stace consults for UniQuest, UQ’s commercial arm, on scientific and technical matters.

W Bradford Stephens

Brad Stephens is Co-founder and Managing Partner of Blockchain Capital, the premier venture capital fund investing in the blockchain technology sector and the first to raise a venture fund through an ICO. Brad is also a Managing Partner of Stephens Investment Management LLC (SIM), which he co-founded in 2002. His diverse background in domestic and international finance includes sell-side securities analysis, hedge fund management, venture capital and family office management.
