Dr Vincenzo Tamma
I am a Senior Lecturer and Group Leader in Physics. I earned a Ph.D. in Applied Physics at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, U.S. and in Physics at the University of Bari under the International Cooperation Program Award issued by the Italian Ministry of Research. My research in the quantum optics laboratory of Prof. Yanhua Shih was recognized with the “Giampietro Puppi Award” for the best Ph.D. thesis in Physics and Astrophysics in Italy. In 2010 I was awarded a 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 directed by Prof. Wolfgang Schleich, before joining the University of Portsmouth in 2016.
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.
