Attention! I have moved on from the University of Auckland and am now a postdoctoral researcher at the Institut Néel in Grenoble, France. My (still up-to-date) Curriculum Vitae is available here.

The 7th International Workshop on Physics and Computation will be held as a satellite workshop to UCNC 2016 in Manchester, UK, from 11-15 July, 2016.
My research interests centre around the field of physics and computation, with an emphasis on quantum information. I am particularly interested in quantum foundations, quantum randomness, and the links between these fields with algorithmic information theory and the philosophy of randomness and quantum mechanics.

My publications can be found on the arXiv here. My PhD thesis, Master's thesis and Honours dissertation are also freely available to download. My CV can be found here.
