András Pályi is an associate professor at the Department of Theoretical Physics, Budapest University of Technology and Economics. He earned his PhD degree in condensed-matter theory at Eötvös Loránd University. Since 2008, he has been doing research on control, readout, and information-loss mechanisms of solid-state quantum bits, in international collaboration with leading experimental groups (Oxford, Cambridge, ETH Zürich, TU Delft, Chalmers, BME). Together with his colleagues, he has created quantum-technology university courses (Quantum bits in solids, Quantum Information Processing, Quantum Computing Architectures). He uses the remote-access IBM quantum computer prototypes in both his research and teaching.
