About me

I am a Senior Quantum Application Theorist working at Qblox.

I’ve been a PhD student (2017-2021) in quantum information theory in Barbara Terhal‘s group, as part of QuTech at Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands. I’ve worked at the intersection of quantum computing, quantum error correction and fault tolerance, mostly focusing on near- and mid-term platforms. In particular I did research on superconducting qubits, leakage and circuit quantization.

Previously (2015-2017), 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 2012-2015, 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.
