Research Assistant
PGI-11, Forschungszentrum Jülich

[Highlight] I'm currently looking for PhD positions in the field of experimental research in spin/superconducting qubits to start in fall 2024 (or early 2025). Please contact me if you have any leads!


My name is Ashish Panigrahi (आशिष पाणिग्राही). I am a research assistant at the JARA Institute for Quantum Information (PGI-11), Forschungszentrum Jülich. My work broadly focuses on high-frequency measurements, which includes radiofrequency reflectometry techniques for fast readout of hole spins in strained Ge/SiGe quantum wells.

Prior to this, I studied physics at the National Institute of Science Education and Research (NISER) and obtained my integrated master's (BS+MS) degree in physics with a minor in computer science from the Homi Bhabha National Institute in May 2023. As part of my master's thesis, I worked jointly at the Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge and the department of Engineering Science, University of Oxford, as part of the Quantum Engineering group, advised by Professor Dorian Gangloff.

Since August 2021, I am also an IBM Qiskit advocate for my contributions to the Qiskit community.

I enjoy working on research pertaining to quantum computation and quantum information processing, specifically based on spin physics in solid-state platforms such as semiconductor quantum dots and similar low-dimensional nanostructures. In general, I am interested in mesoscopic systems that can leverage quantum phenomena to help understand fundamental physics involved, as well as to build hardware for technological applications.

Outside academics, I love playing racquet sports (badminton and table tennis in particular), quoting Seinfeld and tinkering around with electronic gadgets.


I am always open to discussing ideas and opportunities for collaboration. Please feel free to reach out. I am also happy to give talks on my research in related seminars.
