dr. J.J. Renema (Jelmer)

Assistant Professor

About Me

I am an assistant professor in the Adaptive Quantum Optics group. My research interests center on multiphoton quantum optics, integrated photonics, and quantum complexity. 

Bio:

I did my undergraduate studies at the University of Leiden, with a final project at the Niels Bohr Institute. I obtained my PhD in Leiden cum laude on the detection mechanism of superconducting single photon detectors. After that, I was at the University of Oxford in the group of Ian Walmsley on a Rubicon grant, and on a Junior Research Fellowship from Queen's College. There I worked on multiphoton quantum interference, both theoretically and experimentally. After that, I moved to the UT on a Veni grant, before starting as an assistant professor in 2020.

Research

I am interested in finding new information processing tasks which can be performed in photonics, and in experimentally demonstrating such tasks. I have an interest in the engineering of the large-scale photonic chips needed for quantum information processing. I also have an interest in computational complexity problems related to photonics. In the past, I have worked on superconducting single photon detectors, plasmonics, atomic physics and parametric down conversion.
