I’m Alastair Marshall and I am currently working for NVision Imagining Technologies while I undertake a PhD supervised by Prof. Jelezko from the University of Ulm, having completed an integrated masters (MPhys) degree at the University of St Andrews in Scotland. The first internship I had involved writing software to estimate the state of charge of lithium ion batteries. I enjoyed working in an environment which allowed me to apply my knowledge of physics in a practical way. I then got involved with the quantum optics research group at St Andrews and have completed an EPSRC Summer project where I looked at pulse retrieval and compression in very short fibres. For my masters project, I looked at the generation and characterisation of resonant radiation. Hopefully this works will allow future students to more easily generate negative resonant radiation.

I am fortunate to be able to work for NVision during my PhD where the research I conduct can hopefully be used to benefit others in the future. My project seeks to use nitrogen vacancy centres in diamond for quantum sensing utilising optimal control techniques. My main areas of interest are quantum sensing, quantum computing and machine learning.
