Noah Linden

Professor of Theoretical Physics in the School of Mathematics

University of Bristol


Noah has made major contributions to quantum information theory and quantum computation, including work on the foundations of quantum computation, quantum computational architectures, non-locality and entanglement. For example, he rigorously established the role of multi-partite entanglement as a resource for quantum computational speed-up; provided widely used tools for the study of quantum non-locality; and provided significant new insights into quantum mechanical features of thermodynamics.

He is currently Director of the Bristol Quantum Information Institute: the Institute is the umbrella organisation for all quantum information and technology activities in the University of Bristol, across the entire spectrum from theory, experiment and training to commercialisation.
