VANCOUVER, BC, Oct. 19, 2023 /CNW/ – BTQ Technologies Inc. (the “Company” or “BTQ“) (NEO: BTQ) (OTCQX: BTQQF) (FSE: NG3), a global quantum technology company focused on securing mission critical networks, proudly announces the addition of Peter Rohde, an accomplished theoretical quantum computer scientist, to its world-class technical team. Dr. Rohde, currently an Honorary Senior Lecturer at Macquarie University, and Associate Investigator at the ARC Centre of Excellence for Engineered Quantum Systems, is renowned for his deep understanding of optical quantum computing, quantum networking and the economics of quantum technology.

Since beginning his academic career in 2007, Dr. Rohde has contributed to advancing progress in quantum-related fields, such as quantum computing, quantum optics and cryptography. Additionally, Dr. Rohde is the lead author of the book “The Quantum Internet”, published by Cambridge University Press.

“While quantum advantage remains a long-term target for most, its implications for information security are relevant today,” said Peter Rohde. “I am excited to work for BTQ, a company that operates at the intersection of two industries where I’ve spent the majority of my career: quantum computing and cryptography. I am excited to work on research where outcomes have immediate relevance as we prepare ourselves for the onset of the quantum era.”

“Peter Rohde’s expertise and deep insights into quantum computing and cryptography are invaluable assets for BTQ. His appointment underscores our commitment to leading the quantum revolution, fortifying our stronghold in quantum research and commercialization. Together, we’re not just envisioning the future of quantum technology – we’re actively shaping it,” said Olivier Roussy Newton, CEO of BTQ.

Dr. Rohde holds a PhD in theoretical physics (quantum computation and quantum information theory) and a Bachelor of Engineering (computer systems and electrical engineering) from the University of Queensland. He is joining Prof. Gavin Brennen, BTQ’s Head of Quantum Research, at the company’s office located at the Quantum Terminal in Sydney and will help drive research, as well as expand BTQ’s technical team in Australia.

Dr. Rohde is also a frequent co-host on BTQ’s “The Quantum State,” a podcast exploring the latest research and innovation in quantum computing.
