Dr Vincenzo Tamma

Senior Lecturer

Vincenzo Tamma


I obtained my Laurea (Master) in Physics at the University of Bari (Italy) in 2006, earning the BNC Research Award for my thesis research. The International Cooperation Program Award issued by the Italian Ministry of Research then allowed me to complete a joint Ph.D. in Applied Physics in 2010 at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, U.S. and in Physics at the University of Bari.

My research was recognized with the “Giampietro Puppi Award” for the best Ph.D. thesis in Physics and Astrophysics in Italy in the academic years 2007-2009. After a one-year postdoctoral fellowship issued by the U.S. Army Research Laboratory, I started to work in 2011 as a research scientist (group leader and lecturer) at the Institute of Quantum Physics at Ulm University, Germany. In the summer of 2016, I was pleased to join the University of Portsmouth, U.K as a Senior Lecturer and Group Leader in Physics.

Research Interests

My research aims at achieving a deeper understanding of the fundamental physics at the interplay between quantum physics, quantum information, complexity theory, atomic physics and general relativity, as well as at boosting the real-world implementation of quantum-enhanced technologies for applications in quantum computation, quantum communication, simulation of complex quantum systems, high-precision sensing and imaging.
