Steven Simon

Fellow & Tutor in Physics (Somerville); Professor of Theoretical and Condensed Matter Physics
PhD Harvard University, BSc Brown University

Professor Simon is a physicist interested in quantum effects and how they are manifested in phases of matter.

He has recently been studying phases of matter known as “topological phases” that are invariant under smooth deformations of space-time.    He is also interested in whether such phases of matter can be used for quantum information processing and quantum computation.  Before coming to Oxford, Dr. Simon was a research director at Bell Laboratories, an industrial research laboratory.
