Asier Galicia is a physicist and electronic engineer graduated from the University of the Basque Country, Spain. After successfully defending his final project on Digital-Analog Quantum Computation under the supervision of Dr. Mikel Sanz, he decided to pursue a Master’s degree in Applied Physics at TU Delft. As part of his Master’s thesis he joined Taminiau’s Lab, supervised by Dr. C. E. Bradley and Dr. T. H. Taminiau. He worked with a Nitrogen-Vacancy centre, extending previously developed techniques to address 21 nuclear 13C spins surrounding it. He then used this new control to study dynamical nuclear polarisation, dephasing and spin diffusion in this complex coupled spin system. After completing his Master’s thesis, he contributed to the QuTiP python package and he is currently part of the admin team. Aiming to make meaningful contributions to the quantum computing field, he now decided to join the Institute for Functional Quantum Systems (PGI-13) as a PhD student under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Ir. Rami Barends and Dr. Pavel Bushev.
