Simon did his master in physics at Chalmers. When he was an amanuensis at 202Q-lab, he developed a virtual instrument for control and readout of superconducting qubits by the means of pulse sequencing. Then, he started his master thesis on quantum thermodynamics working under the supervision of Aamir. After an exchange in Hong Kong, he came back to 202Q-lab to do his PhD. Besides physics, he enjoys rock climbing, programming, and scuba diving.
