Quantum Revival for Supremacy
This recording is a short presentation by Prof. Sithi as an introduction to the world of theoretical physics. He covered the established theories, which are essentially driven by our primary desire to better understand the world around us; including the current challenges facing the research area. Not only that, he also shared how Malaysians can take part in what he called the new quantum era, in areas as diverse as banking and transportation.
From Albert Einstein to the Schrödinger’s cat, you will definitely learn something from this highly engaging talk. As Buzz Lightyear puts it: “To infinity, and beyond!”

Dr. Sithi V. Muniandy is currently a Professor of Theoretical Physics at the Department of Physics, Faculty of Science, Universiti Malaya (UM).
He obtained his DPhil in Mathematics from University of Oxford in 1998, MSc in Theoretical Physics from Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) in 1995, and BSc(Hons) in Physics from UKM in 1992. His research specializations are in statistical physics and quantum dynamics, with research interest covering topics from stochastic and fluctuation dynamics; to transport phenomena in classical and quantum systems (anomalous diffusion, nonlinear dynamics in complex plasmas, quantum walk in noisy channels, tensor network formalism for quantum Ising model, physics of information).
Prof. Sithi is also actively involved in various research collaborations and STEM education, and currently is the Director of the Centre for Theoretical and Computational Physics at UM. He may be contacted at email@example.com for further details.
