Dr Josh Nunn is one of the leading experts in quantum memories and their applications to photonics quantum computing. After obtaining his PhD in 2009, Josh stayed on at the University of Oxford’s Clarendon Laboratory as a departmental lecturer and then as a Royal Society University Research Fellow working on light-matter interactions. In 2017 he was appointed Reader in Photonics at the Centre for Photonics and Photonic Materials at the University of Bath where he is developing protocols for light storage based on Kerr interactions in warm vapours and Brillouin scattering in diamond. He currently leads the Photonics Workpackage for the EPSRC Networked Quantum Information Technologies Hub. Josh is co-founder of Veriqloud, a start-up developing quantum network applications, and more recently he co-founded ORCA Photonics, a new quantum computing company building a scalable and flexible quantum computer powered by photonics.
