Postdoctoral Research Fellow, NII QIST

National Institute of Informatics, 2-1-2 Hitotsubashi, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, Japan #101-8430

Marta P. Estarellas is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Global Research Center for Quantum Information Science at NII. She completed her PhD in Physics at the York Centre for Quantum Technologies (University of York, UK), under the supervision of Timothy P. Spiller and Irene D’Amico, on the use of spin-chain systems for quantum information applications. Her background spans different fields, with a BSc in Chemistry, a MSc in Physical-Chemistry, an Engineer’s Degree in Computer Engineering (focus in Computer Architecture and Networks), and an inter-university European Master’s in Theoretical Quantum Chemistry and Computational Modelling (obtained with the highest overall class grade).

Research Interests

Marta's current research interests focus, among others, on:

Spin chain systems and exotic states of matter, such as time crystals, for quantum information processing applications.

Optimization techniques for compiling quantum algorithms in large-scale fault-tolerant quantum computer architectures.

Classical and quantum machine learning.

She is actively collaborating with Timothy Spiller and Irene D'Amico at the University of York. She is also known for her passion for craft beer and dogs.
