CQuIC Welcomes Postdoctoral Fellow, Philip Blocher to CQuIC

Philip BlocherCQuIC welcomes Philip Blocher as a Postdoctoral Fellow in the group of Ivan Deutsch.

Philip recently completed his PhD at Aarhus University in Denmark under the supervision of Klaus Mølmer, during which Philip investigated the conditional dynamics of monitored quantum systems in the presence of signal delays.  Additionally, Philip explored theoretical and experimental methods of evaluating the correlations in measurement signals to characterize system dynamics.

Philip is very excited to join the CQuIC team, and his main area of research here will be the robustness to decoherence versus computation complexity of NISQ devices.

Philip’s research interests also include measurement-based state control and out-of-time-ordered correlation functions.

Philip started work at CQuIC on March 1, 2021.

Outside of physics Philip is an aviation enthusiast, loves listening to music and playing the violin, and likes to go hiking or biking. He is looking forward to exploring New Mexico and the Southwest during his time here.
