Personal profile

Research Interests


Dr. Alessandro Ferraro is a Lecturer in Quantum Information at CTAMOP, where he was appointed in 2013. After being awarded his PhD from the University of Milan (Italy) in 2005, he was research fellow at the Institute of Photonic Sciences (Barcelona, 2006-2009), Autonomous University of Barcelona (2010), and University College London (UK, 2011-2012), funding his research via a number of fellowships and grants – including the Juan De La Cierva (Spain) and Marie Curie (EU) fellowships.

Ferraro research focuses mainly on quantum information with continuous variables and quantum optics. He authored a book that is considered a standard reference in the field. Ferraro research on more fundamental aspects of quantum correlations and non-locality has also been recognised of the highest academic impact. He also contributed with various publications to the research at the interface between quantum information and many-body quantum systems.
