About me

I was born in Palermo in 1991, although I've always lived in a small town nearby, around 15km away. I've studied in the University of Palermo for both my Bachelor and Master degrees in physics. My bachelor thesis was about the theory of an OPO system in a tunable laser. Since my interests (Quantum Optics, Communication and Photonics) were pretty far from my university areas of research (solid state physics and astrophysics) I did the experimental work for my Master Thesis in the University of Rome, in which I studied a type of quantum channels that in principle introduced noise in a communication line by destroying the entanglement of the state that was used for the communication.

After my master degree I wanted to work more on the applied side of physics and I joined the IQO group here in Paderborn for my PhD to work on integrated single photon sources.

Master degree

My master degree in physics was held in the University of Palermo. Nonetheless, I have done my master thesis' work in the Phyisics Department of the University of Rome "La Sapienza" in quantum information. My project dealt with quantum entanglement-breaking channels and entanglement preservation in such noisy environments.

Bachelor degree

I have earned my bachelor degree in Physics at the University of Palermo. My thesis was about an OPO system in a tunable laser.
