A Physicist in Theory

We’ll be welcoming six new Fellows to Selwyn this autumn.

One of them will be Dr Katarzyna Macieszczak. She completed her PhD at the University of Nottingham, after taking her undergraduate degree at the University of Warsaw. She will become the Henslow Research Fellow.

Dr Macieszczak studies the area of ’quantum metrology’ which is concerned with making very precise and sensitive measurements by exploiting quantum mechanical effects. She is principally a theoretical physicist, but her research bears directly on the development of practical instruments and especially quantum computing. While in Cambridge she will be part of the Theory of Condensed Matter group at the Cavendish.
