About me

I am a PhD student in quantum information theory in Barbara Terhal‘s group, as part of QuTech at Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands. My research interests lie at the intersection of quantum computing, quantum error correction and fault tolerance, mostly focused on near- and mid-term platforms. In particular I’m working on superconducting qubits, leakage and circuit quantization.
Moreover, I’m interested in tensor networks – with a connection to holography – and quantum Shannon theory.

Previously, I got a Master Degree in Theoretical and Mathematical Physics at LMU and TU Munich. My thesis supervisor has been Prof. Robert König, at TUM. The subject of my work were the properties of MERA codes, that is, quantum error correcting codes for which the encoder has the structure of a MERA tensor network.

In 2015, I got my Bachelor in Physics at the University of Trieste, in Italy. My Bachelor thesis dealt with “Black Hole Entropy and Thermodynamics”, under the supervision of Prof. Stefano Ansoldi.
