(HPCWire) Cambridge Quantum Computing (CQC) is pleased to announce the addition of Dr. Stefano Pironio as Scientific Advisor on Quantum Cryptography.
Stefano is recognized as a pioneer and one of the world’s leading experts in the field of device-independent quantum cryptography. Stefano is well known for his work on deriving one of the earliest security proof of device-independent quantum key distribution and his contributions to the first experimental demonstration of device-independent quantum random number generation. Stefano is an accredited co-inventor of the NPA Hierarchy, a standard tool to study quantum correlations and their applications.
Currently, Stefano is a F.R.S.-FNRS Senior Research Associate at the Université Libre de Bruxelles, where he completed his Ph.D. in Physics. He has held postdoctoral positions at the California Institute of Technology, the Institute of Photonic Sciences, and at the University of Geneva. Stefano has received the QIPC Young Investigator Award, the De Donder prize of the Belgian Academy of Sciences, and the price La Recherche.
