12/2022 – Today PhD Student on Space Optics
09/2021 – 10/2022 MSci Student on Space Optics
Mary joined us in September 2021 to work on a novel spectroscopy model for quantum space missions.
Mary Georgousi is a PhD student in the Space–Optics Group in IESL. She completed her undergraduate studies in Physics at the Physics Department of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. As member of the Gravitational Waves Group – AUTh, she has worked on probing the properties of our Galaxy based on the detection of gravitational waves from LISA. She then obtained her MSc diploma on Advanced Physics, focusing on astrophysics and space applications, in the Physics Department of University of Crete. She is also a member of SpaceDot team, participating in Fly your satellite! 3 program for CubeSats.
05/2021 – today PhD Student (on leave)
Vidhu did her Bachelor of Science (Physics, Mathematics, Computer Science – Triple Major) at Bangalore University (Wiki), from which she graduated second of her class (Gold Medalist).
During the final year of her Bachelor’s Program, she was selected for the prestigious Indian Academy of Science (IASc) – Summer Research Fellowship Program (SRFP) – 2017 at the Quantum Materials and Devices Group (formerly known as the Low-Temperature Nano-Electronics Group), Department of Physics, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, under Prof Arindam Ghosh.
After working as a Project Trainee in the same group, she continued with her Master of Science (Physics) at Bangalore University and graduated top of her class (Gold Medalist). Her master’s project was on Quantum Computation, Estimating Pi using Quantum Phase Estimation Algorithm, which she runs on the public access quantum computer of IBM (Qiskit).
Following her masters, she joined as a Project Assistant / Junior Research Fellow (JRF) at the Quantum Optics and Quantum Information Processing Group, Department of Instrumentation and Applied Physics, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore.
At the moment she is awaiting her visa which has been delayed due to COVID restrictions.
08/2020 – today PhD Student on the theory of nanoLace.
Apostolos has joined us in August 2020 to work on the theory of matterwaves and how to use magnetic lenses and RF-fields to produce coherent lenses and mirrors. The final aim is to create nano-scale matter-wave images
