Attila Geresdi is a permanent team leader at the Topological Quantum Computation Roadmap of QuTech. His current research aims at developing novel topological platforms with the goal of demonstrating quantum bits with inherent topological protection. Attila holds a summa cum laude PhD for his work on point contact Andreev reflection measurements on magnetic semiconductors and memristive systems at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics, Hungary. He joined the Delft University of Technology in 2012 as a postdoctoral researcher to investigate nanoscale low dimensional semiconductor systems in pursuit of topological Majorana states. In 2014, he was awarded with the prestigious Veni grant of NWO to develop microwave spectroscopy of Majorana states. He joined QuTech as a senior scientist in 2015.
