Michael Bremner is a Professor of Information Technology at the Centre for Quantum Computation and Intelligent Systems at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS). At UTS he leads a team researching theoretical quantum computation; specializing in the capabilities of quantum software, and the design of quantum computers. Michael is particularly known for his work in revealing the potential computational supremacy of near-term quantum computing devices. Michael completed his PhD at the University of Queensland in 2005 under Dr Michael Nielsen on the role entanglement plays in the design of quantum computers. Between 2005-2012 he worked in Europe, holding postdoctoral appointments with quantum computing teams at the Universities of Innsbruck, Bristol, and Hannover.
