Jarryd Pla is an Electrical Engineer and experimental Physicist, working in the fields of quantum information processing (QIP) and more broadly quantum technologies. He is a former Bragg Gold Medal winner and European Marie Curie International Fellow. Jarryd was instrumental in demonstrating the first quantum bits made from the electron and nucleus of a single dopant atom inside a silicon chip. His current research interests span spin-based quantum computation, superconducting quantum circuits (in particular quantum-noise-limited microwave amplifiers) and hybrid quantum technologies. He is focused on developing new quantum technologies to aid with the scaling of quantum computers and to advance capabilities in spectroscopy and sensing.
