Name: Bill Munro
Bill is a senior distingished scientist and group leader at NTT BRL.

A Brief History:

Bill graduated in 1989 with a BSc in Chemistry and Physics (Waikato, New Zealand), followed by an MSc in Physics (Waikato) in 1991 and a DpPhil in Quantum Optics (Waikato) in 1994. He moved to the computer industry in early 1995 where he worked on various projects. In July 1997 he accepted an Australian Research Council Fellowship at the Department of Physics in the University of Queensland, Australia. During this fellowship he investigated multiparticle tests of quantum mechanics and developed an ntense interest in entanglement, methods to characterize it and its practical use in QIP. Then in November 2000 Bill joined HP Labs as a research scientist and was instrumental in HP's development of its quantum enabled technologies. In early 2010 he moved to Japan and joined NTT BRL first as a research specialist before founding the theory quantum physics group in 2014. He was then promoted in 2016 to Senior Distinguished Scientist and established its research center for theoretical quantum physics in 2017.

My Research:

Bill has researched and published extensively in several areas of Physics; from foundational issues of quantum theory, quantum and atom optics through to quantum information processing and quantum state and process tomography, decoherence free subspaces and their application to practical QIP. His current interests have focussed around:
