Professor of Physics and Astronomy
Lorenza Viola is a theoretical physicist specializing in quantum information science. Following a "Laurea" (Master) degree in Physics from the University of Trento, Italy (1991), and a Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics from the University of Padova, Italy (1996), she has been a postdoctoral fellow at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a J. R. Oppenheimer fellow at Los Alamos National Laboratory. She joined Dartmouth College in 2004. She has served as a member of the editorial board of "Physical Review A" as well as the Chair of the Topical Group on Quantum Information of the American Physical Society.
Theoretical quantum information physics, with implications for complex and controlled quantum dynamics: control of open
