Tamás Kiss is the head of the Department of Quantum Optics and Quantum Information at the Wigner Research Centre for Physics. He obtained his PhD at the Eötvös University in 1999 (partly working in Berlin) doing pioneering research on the method of quantum state tomography, which became a standard technique in quantum information technology since that time. He spent two years at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland with the help of a Marie Curie Individual Fellowship, where he studied Hawking radiation in laboratory analogues, e.g. in Bose condensed cold atomic gases. In recent years, his research was focused on quantum walks and the effect of measurements on the dynamics of systems in quantum information. He has worked out various aspects of the theory of measurement induced, iterated, nonlinear quantum protocols.
