Professor of the Physics of Quantum Computation
Chiara Macchiavello received her PhD in 1995 from the University of Pavia. She then spent two years at the University of Oxford with a Marie Curie postdoctoral position. In 1998 she became research assistant at the University of Pavia, where she is now Professor of the Physics of Quantum Computation. She has made relevant contributions in various aspects of theoretical quantum information science, including pioneer work in quantum error correction and quantum algorithms, quantum privacy amplification and quantum cloning. For her work she was awarded a prestigeous prize from Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei in 2006.
