Skype a scientist
with one of our scientists
Skype a scientist is a platform that connects scientists to group of people all around the world.
If you’d like to chat informally with a scientist for 30 minutes, this is the program for you! Just remember to write the name of one of our scientists in the “request a specific scientist” field in the registration form. You can find below the names of the ICFOnians available on the Skype a scientist platform.
Postdoctoral researcher with a broad range of interests and expertise. I have worked with gravitational wave astrophysics/astronomy at the cutting edge of precision metrology; used lasers, atoms and entanglement to test the fundamental limits of quantum mechanics; and now I grow carbon nanotubes to make a mechanical qubit at ultralow temperatures.
Postdoctoral researcher expert in quantum physics.
ICFO Outreach team member
Physicist, doctor in experimental quantum physics, I am now part of ICFO’s outreach team, coordinating educational activities to spread the passion for photonics among young people and adults. I’m also involved in the coordination of ICFO citizen science projects, like the BIG Bell test and NightUp.
Engaging talks and informal conversations with the people working in cutting-edge research.
