Biography

Chris, CEO & Co-Founder of KETS, has been building prototype quantum communication systems and exploring their commercial potential for the last 18 years. After starting as a Lecturer in Quantum Engineering at the Quantum Engineering Technology Labs (QETLabs) at the University of Bristol – where he helped to pioneer a next-gen chip-based approach to quantum encryption – he’s now commercialising this approach in the quantum start-up KETS. At KETS, we develop quantum-safe chip-based encryption to protect critical data from all advanced computer attacks. Chris holds a PhD from the Institute for Quantum Computing and a BASc Honours in Systems Design Engineering both at the University of Waterloo.
