Research Assistant (Incoming)
PGI-11, Forschungszentrum Jülich


My name is Ashish Panigrahi (आशिष पाणिग्राही) and I am an incoming research assistant at the JARA Institute for Quantum Information (PGI-11), Forschungszentrum Jülich in the group of Dr. Vincent Mourik.

Prior to this, I received my integrated master's (BS+MS) degree in physics with a minor in computer science from the National Institute of Science Education and Research (NISER), an off-campus centre of Homi Bhabha National Institute in June 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 in the group of 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 (especially badminton and table tennis) and enjoy learning/tinkering with computers and tech in general. I'm a strong advocate of free/libre & opensource software (free as in freedom) with adherence to the unix philosophy of "doing one thing, and doing it well".


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.
