Antoine Restivo​

Université Libre de Bruxelles

Antoine Restivo (Belgium) graduated from the University of Geneva, Faculty of Science, Department of Applied Physics in 2021.
Specialization is in Theoretical Physics. Main interest lies in the area of Quantum Information Theory, Antoine Restivo conducted thesis “Network Nonlocality: A study of Nonlocal and Non-Signalling Correlations in Multipartite Scenarios” under the supervision of Nicolas Brunner and Denis Rosset.
During his master he could work on various topics such as quantum interference fluctuations in disordered metals, gravitational waves and the Jacobson’s interpretation of general relativity before specializing in the field of quantum information theory.
In parallel of his master thesis about correlations in networks, he developed open source tools in MATLAB associated to the visualization of the solutions of linear programs and a Python package to solve marginal compatibility problems as SAT problems. With his more recent interest for complexity theory, he is also developing tools based on both classical and quantum algorithms for the computation of the permanent of a matrix and more generally a Julia library for the study of boson sampling.
Aside from quantum physics (but still related to optics), his main hobby is photography.
Currently, Antoine Restivo is working on the AppQInfo project Active and Passive Multimode Quantum Interferometry towards a better understanding of photonic interferences in hybrid settings combining passive and active interactions between many modes, as a member of the research group Centre for Quantum Information and Communication at the Université Libre de Bruxelles , supervised by Professor Nicolas Cerf and Dr Leonardo Novo.
Antoine Restivo moved from Switzerland to Belgium. He worked in the AppQInfo project until September 2022.
