About Me

I completed my master’s in Applied Physics at TU Delft in 2017 (cum laude) with short stints at Instituto de Telecomunicações with Prof. Yasser Omar and Cornell University with Prof. Cyrus Umrigar.

I then spent a year working at Rigetti as a junior quantum engineer.

After that I returned to Delft, where I am now a PhD student in the Quantum Tinkerer group.
