Continuous-variable quantum information and quantum computing, quantum optics, relativistic quantum information
A UNM alumnus from 2002, Dr. Nicolas Menicucci is now a permanent faculty member at RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia. His current position is Vice-Chancellor's Senior Research Fellow and Senior Lecturer. He is known for pioneering the theoretical and experimental development of continuous-variable cluster states for quantum computing and for important contributions to relativistic quantum information theory, especially in the area of entanglement harvesting from quantum fields.
