PhD University of Melbourne (1985-89)

ARC Professorial Fellow
Professor of Physics University of Melbourne
Centre Node Manager Victoria
Program Manager Device Modelling

Lloyd completed his PhD in 1989 at the University of Melbourne in theoretical particle physics and was subsequently awarded a JSPS Fellowship at the KEK accelerator laboratory in Tsukuba, Japan. After his postdoctoral period he returned to the School of Physics where he is now Professor and an ARC Australian Professorial Fellow. Lloyd's early work in mathematical physics, non-perturbative many body systems and lattice gauge theory was a natural starting point for his interest in quantum computing. In 2000 Lloyd joined the Centre of Excellence for Quantum Computer Technology, and since creating and directing the Device Modelling and Algorithms Program in 2001 has been a major driving force and architect of the silicon quantum computer vision. This program now comprises 10 research students and 3 postdocs. He is an internationally known proponent of quantum technology in the wider context, as the selected publications show, having also worked on quantum communication systems as a Technical Director of the Quantum Communications Victoria initiative (2005-2008), and recently developing quantum applications for ultra-sensitive imaging techniques crossing over to the nano-bio realm.
