Jarryd Pla is an Electrical Engineer and experimental Physicist, working in the fields of quantum information processing (QIP) and more broadly quantum technologies. He is a former Bragg Gold Medal winner and Marie Curie International Fellow. Jarryd was instrumental in demonstrating the first quantum bits made from the electron or nucleus of a single dopant atom inside a silicon chip. His current research interests span spin-based quantum computation, superconducting quantum circuits (in particular quantum-noise-limited microwave amplifiers) and hybrid quantum technologies. He is focused on developing advanced quantum technologies to aid with the scaling of quantum computers and to substantially improve capabilities in various spectroscopy and sensing techniques.
