We are a theoretical physics group working on topics in quantum information theory and quantum thermodynamics. Our research focus is the interplay of quantum and thermal fluctuations in quantum systems, and the extension of thermodynamics to the quantum regime. Quantum thermodynamics research underpins technological developments that miniaturise to the nanoscale with applications expected in nano- and quantum machines, data storage, quantum computation and communication, and diagnostic healthcare devices. More about the group's research can be found on the Research page.


Jurassic coast.
Exeter cathedral.
We are located in the Department of Physics & Astronomy at the University of Exeter, UK. Based at Streatham campus we are in walking distance to the cathedral city of Exeter and a short drive from the World Heritage Jurassic coastDartmoor National Park and the scenic South West Coast Path.


The group leads a large EU funded COST network "Thermodynamics in the quantum regime" with regular conferences and workshops in the area of quantum thermodynamics that are open to researchers and industry alike. More information and upcoming events can be found here and here

Our research is co-funded by the Royal Society, EPSRC and the COST cooperation (part of the EU research framework programme Horizon2020).
