QML Intern @ CQC: from April 2022 until August I will in London for a reseacrch internship in the Quantum Machine Learning team at Quantinuum/Cambridge Quantum.

Hi, I’m Stefano

I am PhD student in Theoretical Physics at the University of Pavia (Italy) under the supervision of Prof. Chiara Macchiavello, in the Quantum Information Theory (QUIT) group.

My PhD research project is focused on Quantum Computing, and in particular to one of its most prominent application, Quantum Machine Learning. Broadly speaking, I’m very interested in topics which lies in the intersection between Quantum Computing and Theoretical Computer Science.

Short Bio

I was born in Puglia, a wonderful region (go check it out) in the southern part of Italy. After High School, I moved to Trieste to study Physics in the University of Triste, where I obtained my Bachelor degree in Physics, and my Master degree in Theoretical Physics, both with full marks. Right after (i.e. now), I moved to Pavia (near Milan) where I’m pursuing my PhD on Quantum Computing.

Apart for academic stuff, I am a slow travel lover and mountain enthusiast. I love hiking and rock climbing, reading books and playing guitar, cook (vegan 🌱) and discuss environmental and social sustainability.

In case you asked, that’s me with a weird smile in front of a glacier in Iceland.
