Peter is interested in various areas of physics, especially those that have a close connection to the field of quantum computing and information. In the past, he has worked on theoretical studies of superconducting circuits in the context of device-modeling, as well as gates and control. His other core research interests include understanding and finding simple, but accurate descriptions of the effects of non-Makovian noise on quantum systems. More recently, he has also been exploring the physics of quantum metrology and sensing, concentrating on finding methods for generating highly entangled, spin-squeezed states, which promise to allow a measurement sensitivity beyond the standard quantum limit. Besides physics, Peter is also interested in all aspects of software development ranging from numerical modeling, to instrumentation control.
