Spyros Tserkis

I'm a Postdoctoral Associate at MIT and a member of the Laboratory for Information & Decision Systems. I'm interested broadly in quantum information theory. More specifically, my research focuses on quantum communication and quantum correlations.

Before joining MIT in Fall 2020, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Australian National University. I received a PhD in Physics from the University of Queensland in 2020, an MSc in Physics from Imperial College London in 2015, and a BSc in Physics from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in 2013.
