John Morton

Prof Morton's research takes spins of electrons and nuclei in a range of nano-scale materials and devices to develop a new generation of quantum technologies, including quantum sensors, quantum memories, and quantum computers. Prof Morton is the Director of the UCL Quantum Science and Technology Institute.

Andrew G. Green

Prof Green is interested in the equilibrium and out-of-equilibrium strongly correlated quantum systems. This encompasses fundamental properties of natural and manufactured materials, the effort to harness quantum mechanics for information processing, and the overlap of the latter with machine learning. He uses a range of tools, including analytical and numerical techniques drawn from quantum field theory and tensor networks.
