After a Ph.D. in ‘quantum oscillations in heavy fermion compounds’ and a postdoc in the physical asymptotics group of Bristol University, Andrew worked in the area of mathematical modeling, firstly at BAE Systems, then at Airbus Group Innovations, and latterly in the Space Systems branch of Airbus. His research interests have covered a number of areas, ranging from electromagnetics, antennas, propagation, stealth, and optics to communication networks and QKD. He is currently the technical point of contact for quantum communications at Airbus Space Systems and the technical lead of the EC project QOSAC.
