PQI Graduate Student Profile: Azarin Zarassi

Azarin Zarassi is a graduate student in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Pitt.

She works in the Frolov lab and is assembling a Majorana qubit with a superconducting qubit to use the coupling between them to read the state of the Majorana qubit from the microwave frequency response of the resonator in the superconducting qubit. This device paves the way to future generation of quantum computers and is the beginning of many studies to exploit Majorana fermions and their unique topological features.

Azarin was a PQI Graduate Student Research Fellow in 2018/2019.
