Dr Alessandro Romito

Lecturer in Condensed Matter Theory

Research Overview

My research is in condensed matter physics. I am particularly interested in quantum many-body effects and their implications for quantum information processing. This includes effects of weak quantum measurements on control and dynamics of electronic and superconducting nano-scale systems, as well as topological phases of matter and their use in fault-tolerant quantum information processing.
