Jorge Fernández Pendás is a researcher working on the modeling and optimal control of superconducting qubits. His interests are broad and include many other aspects of theoretical physics, with a special emphasis on their computational side. Some of his previous works dealt with topics such as quantum anomalies, quantum transport phenomena and topological matter.
Jorge started as a postdoc at Chalmers in December 2019, few weeks after receiving his PhD in Theoretical Physics from the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. He is a member of the Applied Quantum Physics Laboratory, at the Department of Microtechnology and Nanoscience, and is also part of the Quantum Computing Theory division of the Wallenberg Centre for Quantum Technology. Furthermore, he is involved in OpenSuperQ, the European consortium to build an open superconducting quantum computer.
