Spyros Tserkis

I'm a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard University and a member of Prof. Narang's group. I'm affiliated with the NSF Engineering Research Center for Quantum Networks. My research focuses on quantum information theory, and more specifically on quantum communication and entanglement theory.

Before joining Harvard in Fall 2021, I was a postdoctoral fellow at MIT and the Australian National University. I received a PhD in Quantum Information 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.
