ETH Zürich

Uwe grew up in London and in Düsseldorf in Germany. He studied Physics at Karlsruhe Institute for Technology in Germany and at Massachusetts institute for Technology in Cambridge, USA. After researching superconducting qubits in his Masters, he moved on to study hybrid quantum acoustic systems in the group of Yiwen Chu at ETH in Zurich. Uwe is interested in building near-term useful quantum devices and in overcoming the fundamental challenges to large-scale quantum computing. His main area of expertise is in design, fabrication and operation of superconducting circuits.



Francesco studied mechanical engineering at Università Politecnica delle Marche in Ancona and Politecnico di Torino in Turin. After working on thermal transport properties of carbon allotropes in his Master, he moved to study optical properties of single photon emitters using non equilibrium statistical mechanics, in the group of Nicola Marzari at EPFL in Lausanne. He is working as well at the development of quantum algorithms for physics and chemistry.


ETH Zürich

Maxwell is originally from Chicago and earned his bachelors in physics from Stanford University. Then he moved across the ocean to complete a masters in applied physics at TU Delft, where he studied nanomechanical structures in his thesis. He started his Ph.D. in Prof. Yiwen Chu's Hybrid Quantum Systems Group in 2020, where he is currently investigating mechanical resonators which might enable future quantum communication networks. Maxwell is enthusiastic about the quantum information applications of acoustic interactions.



Bruno Schmitt received a computer engineering degree from the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS) in 2017. He has worked as a visiting researcher in the logic synthesis & verification group of Prof. Robert K. Brayton at UC Berkeley. Bruno also was a visiting researcher at Prof. Giovanni de Micheli's logic synthesis group at EPFL. Today,  He is a fourth-year Ph.D. student at de Micheli's group.

Bruno has also worked on both Microsoft and IBM quantum research teams. As part of his research, he is the main developer and maintainer of an open-source full-stack library for quantum compilation, tweedledum, and an active contributor for the EPFL logic synthesis libraries. His primary research interests include quantum compilation, logic synthesis, formal verification, design automation tools (CAD), and SAT solvers.
