Dr David Jennings


I am based in the University of Leeds, as a proleptic lecturer and University Academic Fellow (UAF). My research involves the study of quantum information and its application within quantum physics.

Research interests

I am a quantum information theorist and my research can be divided into the following topics:

  • Structural aspects of quantum theory, quantum algorithms and computation.
  • Quantum resource theories (entanglement, coherence, asymmetry, thermodynamics, etc.).
  • QI in many-body and quantum field theory.


  • BSc in Theoretical Physics, Trinity College Dublin
  • MSc in Theoretical Physics, Trinity College Dublin
  • PhD in High Energy Physics, University of Cambridge
