Raphael Kaubruegger

I earned my B.Sc and M.Sc in Austria at the University of Innsbruck. During my master's program, I visited the University of Gothenburg in Sweden, where I conducted research on neural network-inspired variational wavefunctions for quantum many-body problems under the guidance of Prof. Jan Budich.

Subsequently, I started a Ph.D. at the University of Innsbruck and the Institute for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information (IQOQI) Innsbruck, supervised by Prof. Peter Zoller. My Ph.D. research centered on the application of variational quantum algorithms in the field of quantum metrology. The aim was to optimize parameterized quantum circuits for the generation of entangled states, such as squeezed states, and to enable measurements in an entangled measurement basis.

At the beginning of 2024, I joined Prof. Ana Maria Rey's group at JILA with the aim of developing innovative protocols for the quantum platforms being developed at JILA.
