Andrew G. White FAA is an Australian scientist and is currently Professor of Physics and a Vice-Chancellor's Senior Research Fellow at the University of Queensland. He is also Director of the University of Queensland Quantum technology Laboratory;[1] Deputy-Director of the ARC Centre for Engineered Quantum systems,[2] and a Program Manager in the ARC Centre for Quantum Computer and Communication Technology.[3] (He has been a founding member of three Australian Research Council Centres of Excellence,[4][5][6]).

He researches in quantum optics, quantum information science and fundamental quantum science. His highly cited publications include work on how to create and detect an optical vortex,[7] sources of quantum entanglement,[8] quantum tomography,[9] and demonstration of the first entangling version of a quantum logic gates.[10]
