Pol leads the experimental team at QUANTIC. He has a background on superconducting quantum devices for quantum information applications and quantum optics. He obtained his PhD from TU Delft in 2010, with a study of superconducting flux qubits and the limits of the interaction strength to a superconducting resonator. He was then a postdoctoral researcher in the Kimble group at the California Institute of Technology working on interfacing cold atoms and photonic waveguides. Later he was a postdoctoral fellow at the Institute for Quantum Computing in the University of Waterloo, working with Dr. C. M. Wilson on superconducting qubits interacting with propagating microwave fields. He is a partner at Entanglement Partners SL.
