A collection of my most cited research papers, and a selection of my books.
A Microscopic Quantum Model For the Experiment Coupling Qubits to a Tardigrade
We provide a quantum model for the recent experiment coupling a tardigrade to superconducting qubits. A number of different perspectives…
Spin, Statistics, Spacetime and Quantum Gravity
We explore the possibility that the connection between spin and statistics in quantum physics is of dynamical origin. We suggest…
A Classical (Local) Account of The Aharonov-Bohm Effect
It is frequently stated that the electromagnetic vector potential acquires a fundamental role in quantum physics, whereas classically it only…
Quantum Signatures of Gravity from Superpositions of Primordial Massive Particles
We study the superposition of primordial massive particles and compute the associated decoherence time scale in the radiation dominated universe….
Jordan in The Church of The Higher Hilbert Space: Entanglement and Thermal Fluctuations
I revisit Jordan’s derivation of Einstein’s formula for energy fluctuations in the black body in thermal equilibrium. This formula is…
Quantum Physics and Consciousness
I know, I know. Yes, it’s a weird topic, but it has been receiving a great deal of coverage and all sorts of things have been claimed and argued. So, here is my two cents.
The Life Scientific interview on BBC Radio 4
I discuss why the Universe is a big quantum computer and why information is the basis for an ultimate theory of everything with Jim Al-Khalili on BBC Radio 4 program, The Life Scientific.
Good for Nothing Fundamental Physics
I am not religious myself, however, I do enjoy reading various religious texts. My absolute favourite is Tao Te Ching, one of the key foundational books in Taoism. Its central idea is that our lives should consist of “acts without action”, meaning that we should “live in the now” and “go with the flow”.
