July 22, 2016
Dr. Igor Pikovski

Postdoc Igor Pikovski has been awarded the Branco Weiss Fellowship by the ETH Zurich (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology). The Fellowship, which is given to outstanding postdoctoral researchers selected from a pool of international applicants, will give Dr. Pikovski up to five years of complete academic freedom to do interdisciplinary research at any institution in the world.

As a Branco Weiss fellow, Dr. Pikovski will study novel quantum devices and methods to manipulate and control their quantum properties. His main goal is to explore how such systems can help probe the interplay between quantum physics and gravity. (For more information, please see the The Branco Weiss Fellowship web page.)
