Vlatko Vedral is a professor of quantum information theory at the University of Oxford and professor of physics at the National University of Singapore (where he is a PI at the Centre for Quantum Technologies). He is the Director of the Oxford Martin School institute on “bio-inspired quantum technologies”. This explores the exciting possibility that living systems are subject to useful quantum effects, with a view to deriving and reverse-engineering architectures to inspire future quantum technologies that will help address serious challenges facing humanity in the 21st century.
He has received numerous awards in recognition for his contribution to the development of the field, including the Royal Society Wolfson Research Merit Award and the World Scientific Medal and Prize. He has over220 publications on quantum physics and collaborates in many inter-disciplinary international networks.
