UCL Computer Science Quantum Interest Group

Welcome!

We are based in the Department of Computer Science at UCL.

We work on various theoretical aspects of quantum and classical information theory, and quantum computation. The activities of the group are also part of the UCL Quantum Science & Technology Institute (UCLQ).

A selection of our publications can be accessed at Recent Publications.
Please feel free to email the academic staff members to discuss student projects and dissertations.
