Short Bio:

During my PhD studies I participated in experiments on storage of quantum states inside atomic medium (so-called quantum memory). I have shown that it is possible to store and retrieve on-demand multiple photons as well as change the properties of resulting entangled state, using the spatial light modulator (SLM). These provide demonstrations of world-record capacity of quantum memory in terms of simultaneously stored modes, non-classicality of retrieved state (including realization of famous Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen paradox in position-momentum domain) and the Hong-Ou-Mandel effect for collective atomic excitations (spin waves). The main motivation has been the creation of single-photon processor able to perform specific tasks for more complicated quantum circuits.

Based on my previous experience I have started the postdoctoral fellow in the field of quantum optics with scattering media, having in the back of my head the applications for biological imaging. In my current research project I try to build a quantum simulator based on wavefront shaping + scattering processes in complex media.
