Research Interests

My primary research interests are in the fields of Quantum Cryptography, Quantum Computation and Quantum Information Theory. A list of topics that I am working:

- Quantum-Key-Distribution and Quantum-Digital-Signatures. Security and Implementations
- Device Independent Quantum Cryptography
- Blind Quantum Computation and Secure Multiparty Quantum Computation
- Verification of Quantum Computation and of Quantum Technology
- Alternative models of Quantum Computation
- Properties of Quantum Mechanics for Quantum Information Tasks. Quantum non-locality and   optimal quantum measurements.

In the past I have also worked on the Foundations of Quantum Mechanics and Quantum Gravity.

Master of Advance Study in Mathematics, University of Cambridge 2003.

PhD in Theoretical Physics, Imperial College London 2006.

Biography

Petros Wallden is Research Associate in Quantum Computation and Quantum Cryptography in the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh and a member of the Laboratory for Foundations of Computer Science (LFCS) and of the Quantum Information Scotland Network (QUISCO) . He also lectures the Introduction to Quantum Computing Course. Dr. Wallden received BSc and MAS degrees in Physics with Theoretical Physics and in Mathematics from Imperial College and University of Cambridge respectively. He then obtained his PhD in Theoretical Physics form Imperial College in 2006. Since then he held postdoctoral positions at the Raman Research Institute, University of Athens and Heriot-Watt University and a Lecturing position at the Technical Educational Institute of Chalkida.

His principal research interests are in the fields of Quantum Cryptography, Quantum Computation and Quantum Information Theory.
