Early Stage Researcher

University of the Basque Country, Bilbao, Spain

Academic Background

I studied physics at the University of Pisa. For my master thesis (2010/2011) I worked in Quantum Tomography via Compressed Sensing with John Calsamiglia at UAB (Barcelona, Spain). In August 2011, I joined the group of Enrique Solano at UPV/EHU in Bilbao, and now I am working in propagating microwave through transmission lines, containing superconducting qubits.

Description of Work

My work is focused in studying propagating quantum microwaves in the context of circuit QED. Indeed, I’m studying how to create and measure this quantized field.  The work is mainly theoretical, but I’m trying to take into count current experimental data taken at WMI (Garching, Germany).
