From Quantum Foundations to Optical Quantum Technologies
My name is Eli Cohen and I'm a senior lecturer at the Faculty of Engineering. I'm also a member of the Institute for Nanotechnology and Advanced Materials and the center for Quantum Entanglement Science&Technology.
I'm currently teaching Quantum Computation (83807), Applied Quantum Mechanics (83204) and Applied Thermodynamics (83644).
I did my PhD (thesis title: "Time and Nonlocality in Quantum Mechanics") at Tel Aviv University under the supervision of Profs. Yakir Aharonov and Lev Vaidman. I then continued to a postdoc at the University of Bristol (specializing in quantum information with Prof. Sandu Popescu) and to a research associate position at the University of Ottawa (specializing in quantum photonics with Prof. Ebrahim Karimi). I've been working on a variety of topics ranging from quantum foundations and quantum information to quantum optics and quantum field theory. A main theme in many of the above works was Quantum Entanglement. I've been also doing a little bit of research in the areas of quantum gravity/cosmology, as well as classical physics/engineering.
I'm a theorist, but over the years I've enjoyed fruitful collaborations with various experimental groups.
In Semester A 2020 we will inaugurate a new Quantum Engineering BSc Program.
We are still accepting submissions for a special issue of Entropy titled: "Axiomatic Approaches to Quantum Mechanics"
