Postdoc and RUA profiles
Manuel Goulão has a PhD in information security from Instituto Superior Técnico, Universidade de Lisboa, Portugal. During his PhD, he has worked on improving the security and efficiency of multi-party computation by developing new quantum and post-quantum cryptographic primitives. His research interests include theoretical and applied cryptography, investigating the use of quantum and classical information techniques to explore novel cryptographic protocols and analyze their security. Currently, he is a post-doctoral researcher at the Networked Quantum Device Unit at OIST, and highly motivated for project collaborations and to mentor students. Previously, he was a researcher in the Security and Quantum Information Group, Instituto de Telecomunicações, and an invited assistant professor at Instituto Superior Técnico, Universidade de Lisboa. Besides research, his interests range from playing cybersecurity CTFs, studying world history, traveling, and enjoying nature.
Faedi Loulidi has a PhD in mathematical physics from Toulouse University. In his PhD, he worked on fundamental aspects of quantum information theory on the understanding fundamental link between the incompatibility of quantum measurements and nonlocality. His research interest lies in the foundations of quantum information theory and its connection to theoretical/mathematical physics more precisely in condensed matter and quantum gravity. Currently, he is a post-doctoral researcher at the Networked Quantum Device Unit at OIST, and highly motivated for project collaborations and to mentor students.
In his free time, he likes reading historical, political, and philosophical books. He practices boxing and enjoys playing video games from time to time.
Ananda Gopal Maity completed his Integrated PhD (MSc.+PhD) degree in Physics from S. N. Bose National Centre for Basic Sciences, Kolkata (2021) with specialization in quantum information theory. Throughout his PhD tenure, he has worked on the intersection of quantum foundation, quantum information processing and quantum communication theory. After submitting his PhD thesis, he joined S. N. Bose Center as a visiting Research Fellow (2021-2022) and has mentored and collaborated with several young researchers in the domain of quantum information theory. In November, 2022, he has joined the Networked Quantum Device Unit at OIST led by Prof. David Elkouss as a postdoctoral fellow. Ananda is mainly interested in entanglement theory and other quantum correlations with their implications in quantum information and communication tasks and is actively looking forward to mentor students in that domain.
Ananda is fascinated for travelling and hiking. He likes to explore the globe learning different cultures. In his spare time, he is also interested in reading novels and story books and learning the world politics.
I studied Law at Kwansei Gakuin University in Kobe and International Studies at City University of New York in NYC. I have lived in NYC and enjoy working at OIST because OIST's diverse cultures remind me of NYC. Now I work as Research Unit Administrator of Networked Quantum Devices Unit since September 2022. Outside of OIST, I enjoy exploring nature of Okinawa by going camping, looking for creatures in the forest and the ocean with my two boys.
