SUMMARY of research interests (100 words)

My primary focus throughout my research has been on the nascent field of Quantum Information Processing. Currently quantum cryptography, the exploitation of the laws of quantum mechanics to guarantee secure communication, is the only commercial QIP application to exploit individual quanta. In this regard QIP is little more developed than digital communication was following the invention of Morse code. I think that QIP will change the role of information in our lives, in much the same way that digital information has.
