Dr Matty Hoban

Matty is a lecturer in computer science with an interest in all things quantum. Quantum information technology is the future of computing with the potential to transform completely how we compute and how we communicate securely. He is interested in how quantum information is fundamentally different from its non-quantum counterpart.

After a PhD from University College London (completed in 2012), before coming to Goldsmiths he has worked at the University of Oxford, ICFO-Institute of Photonic Sciences, and the University of Edinburgh.

Research Interests

Quantum Information: Quantum Cryptography and Quantum Computing. Foundations of Quantum Theory. Causal Inference and Bayesian Networks.
