Howard Wiseman is a pioneer and world-leader in quantum measurement and control theory. His seminal work on continuous measurements has built a theory with genuine experimental relevance in optics and solid-state. His measurement-based control protocols have significantly impacted the international experimental agenda in quantum optics, with several recent research programs dedicated to realizing them. He has co-authored the first book in these areas, entitled Quantum Measurement and Control, soon to be published by Cambridge University Press. In addition, he is internationally recognized for his contributions to the study of Bose-Einstein condensation, fundamental quantum phenomena, and quantum information theory.
