Dr Simon C Benjamin is a Senior Fellow in Quantum Materials at the University of Oxford. His areas of interest are: Physics of computation; Design and realization of architectures for new forms of information processing, especially quantum computing; Theoretical work relating to the design, growth and characterization of solid state nanostructures for computation, with particular current emphasis on (a) quantum dots systems, both self assembled and lithographically defined, and (b) fullerene systems (nanotubes, endohedral C60, etc.). He has secondary interest in other areas of quantum information theory, such as quantum game theory.
