Eric Chitambar

Associate Professor

Eric Chitambar

Office: Neckers 480

Phone: (618) 453-2020

Email: echitamb@cs.siu.edu

Education: Ph.D. Physics, University of Michigan

Current Research Interests:

Quantum information theory, which is a field that studies how quantum mechanical properties can be used to enhance information processing. For instance, quantum entanglement has been shown to produce some truly remarkable phenomena such as state teleportation and an exponential speed-up in computation time.

Much of his research deals with the theory of quantum entanglement and understanding how the properties of entanglement lead to novel paradigms for information transmission.
