My popular-science article "Quantum weirdness passes the atomic walk test" was just published. In it I explain a bit of the background behind the recent Leggett-Garg tests peformed by Andrea & friends in Bonn.
I am a theoretical physicist with interests in all things quantum. More information on my research can be found here.
After obtaining my Ph.D. under the supervision of Prof. Raymond F. Bishop at the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology (UMIST), I worked with Prof. Carlo Beenakker at the Universiteit Leiden (shotnoise, entanglement in mesoscopic systems), and with Prof. Lu Sham at UCSD (optical control of electron spins in quantum dots).
From 2006 to 2012 I worked as a senior Research Associate at the Technische Universität Berlin in the group of Prof. Dr. Tobias Brandes and was principal investigator in the Collaborative Research Center SFB 910: Control of self-organizing nonlinear systems .In 2013, I was appointed as lecturer in the Department of Physics and Mathematics at the University of Hull.
