General information

Received BSc in Theoretical Physics at the Zagreb University, Zagreb, Croatia in 1991. Works an the Rudjer Boskovic Institute from 1991. The same year started collaboration in CERN's experiment NOMAD. In 1992. Went on on leave from RBI at LAPP, Annecy France where he works on future LHC CERN experiments RD3 and ATLAS. Receives PhD in high energy experimental physics at the Universite de Savoie, Chambery, France in 1994 and returns to the RBI where he continues his research on neutrinos and axions. Since 1999 member of OPERA neutrino oscillation collaboration. In 2003 gained interest in Quantum Information: random numbers, quantum cryptography, quantum computing and photon detectors. Since then he lead several projects in that area. From 2007 onwards leader of the basic research project "Experiments in quantum communication and quantum information" at RBI. Wins Fulbright scholarship at University of California Santa Barbara for academic year 2010/2011 for research on Quantum computing (host. Prof. D. Bouwmeester). Since 2011 on specialization at UCSB. Authored over 58 CC publications, 20 other publications and 3 patents.
