Uri was born in Donetsk, Ukraine and grew up in Jerusalem, Israel. He completed his Ph.D. at Yale University, working in the lab of Professor Michel Devoret and conducting theoretical research with Professor Steven Girvin. Uri's graduate work explored the different kinds of artificial atoms accessible using superconducting circuits. As a John Harvard distinguished science fellow at Harvard University, Uri worked with Professor Amir Yacoby on quantum scanning magnetometry with nitrogen-vacancy centers and the use of quantum information techniques to study condensed matter properties. Uri is currently a Max Planck Research Group (MPRG) leader at the MPI-CPfS, leading the Quantum Information for Quantum Materials (QIQM) group.
Po-Ya was born in Taipei and grew up in Taichung, Taiwan. He finished his Ph.D. at Technische Universität Dresden (TU Dresden) and International Max Planck Research School for Chemistry and Physics of Quantum Materials (IMPRS-CPQM), working in Professor Andrew P. Mackenzie’s lab and doing experimental condensed-matter research with Dr. Clifford W. Hicks. During the doctoral research, Po-Ya’s developed new techniques combining focused ion beam (FIB) etching and novel uniaxial stress methods for the transport measurements on microstructured unconventional superconductors under uniaxial pressure. Po-Ya is currently a post-doctoral research scientist working on circuit quantum electrodynamics hybrid devices.
Young-Gwan was born and grew up in South Korea. He completed his M.S. degree at Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology (GIST), working in the lab of Professor Jong-Seok Lee and completed his Ph.D. at Sungkyunkwan University (SKKU), working in the lab of Professor Gyung-Min Choi. He studied various quantum phenomena, e.g. spin/orbital Hall effects, topological effects, heat transport, and so on, in condensed matter systems using laser-based optical technique. Young-Gwan is currently a postdoctoral researcher working on the nitrogen-vacancy scanning technique.
Haolin Jin was born in Shaoxin and grew up in Shenzhen, China. He obtained his bachlor's and master's degree at the South China University of Technology (SCUT), working in Professor Xi Chen's group and doing high pressure experiments through the Diamond anvil cell (DAC) method on different materials. He is familiar with using microscopes, Physics Property Measurement System, Raman spectroscopy and so on. Haolin is currently working on fabricating hybrid superconducting circuits with two-dimensional superconducting materials as a Ph.D candidate.
Giuseppe graduated from the University of Naples Federico II (Italy) in 2021 and started his PhD in 2022 at same university. He is working on the fabrication and design of superconducting quantum circuits. During his first year he designed and characterized superconducting resonators as a platform to study Josephson junctions. Since joining the group, Giuseppe has been investigating 2D High-Temperature Superconducting Van der Waals twisted Josephson junctions, and how they can be integrated into superconducting circuits.
