Daniel joined the Quantum Photonics group at uOttawa in 2021 as a PhD student in the Electrical & Computer Engineering department. Daniel attended McGill University, where he completed a B.Com. (Finance) and B.Sc. (Physics) simultaneously. Prior to joining the group, Daniel worked in Ottawa’s telecommunications industry, where he worked on next-generation optical network interface modules. His previous research experience covers number theory, quantum information science, cryptography, and integrated photonics. When he isn’t in the office, Daniel enjoys spending time outdoors, eating donuts, and brushing his teeth. His hobbies include skiing, canoeing, sailing, and carpentry.
Daniel's thesis focuses on developing compact communications hardware for accomplishing continuous-variable quantum key distribution (CV-QKD).
