I am a research fellow at the ENS de Lyon, in the MC2 (Models of Computation and Complexity) team. My research is focused on quantum computation, particularly quantum functional programming languages and lambda calculi, and quantum cellular automata. I have also recently become interested in performance guarantees of embedded networks, as part of the ANR Pegase project. Although I work mainly in Lyon, I still visit CAPP in Grenoble most Fridays.
Please feel free to contact me using the details on the right. I can also be found on facebook and twitter.
May 2012: A Quantum Game of Life: Companion Website has been updated to cover all of our work on Quantum Cellular Automata (optimal 3D, and 2D+), including next month's Physics World feature on "digital physics".
Teaching Research Fellow (ATER), 2009-2010, at the ENS de Lyon.
I am married to Dr Janine Grattage (née Swarbrick). Janine completed a PhD in Physics at the Nottingham Nanoscience Group, then four years as a researcher on ID26 at the ESRF. She is now a Patent Attorney in Nottingham. In July 2010 our first child, Yann Grattage, was born.
