Alexei Gilchrist

Department of Physics and Astronomy
Macquarie University


I received my D.Phil. from Waikato University (New Zealand) in 1997 under the supervision of Professor Crispin Gardiner. Moving to Australia in 2001 as a New Zealand FRST Fellow, I then remained in Australia as a research fellow for the ARC COE Centre for Quantum Computer Technology working at the University of Queensland. In 2007 I joined the faculty at Macquarie University as an Associate Professor.
