Andrew Daley is a Professor of Quantum Physics (in Atomic and Laser Physics, Department of Physics) and a tutorial fellow at Keble College.

Andrew is originally from Auckland, New Zealand, where he completed his Master’s Degree at the University of Auckland, before moving to Innsbruck, Austria for his Doctorate.
His research bridges fundamental phenomena in quantum optics and many-body physics to the design and real-world applications of quantum technologies.

He and his team have developed numerical techniques for out of equilibrium dynamics, and theoretical tools for open many-body quantum systems (understanding state engineering, continuous measurement, and driven systems). Their theoretical work is closely connected with experiments in neutral atoms, trapped ions, and solid-state devices, and provides a roadmap for new architectures and applications in quantum computing and simulation.

Andrew was software lead for the EU Quantum Technologies Flagship project on Programmable Atomic Large-scale Quantum Simulation, and Principal Investigator of the EPSRC programme grant on Designing out of equilibrium many-body quantum systems. He was made a Fellow of the American Physical Society in 2021.
