Ciao, I'm Andrea!
Physics, photography & code enthusiast

Currently based in Pisa, Italy

About me

Hey, my name is Andrea Iorio and I am an italian young physicist with a passion for landscape photography and coding. I'm currently based in Pisa where I'm pursuing a PhD degree at Scuola Normale Superiore in the superconducting quantum electronics lab.
I’m also into web design, computer graphic and programming and throughout the years I freelance developed websites, illustrations and digital resources for private clients and companies.
In the free time I enjoy hiking and landscape photography. My pictures have been featured on National Geographic and other magazines.

Everyday life

Physics & research

My PhD research is focused on the fabrication and study of nanostructures placed in supercool refrigerators under temperatures near the absolute zero. In these conditions, the weird properties of quantum mechanics can be exploited to realize sci-fi devices like quantum computers.


For specialists

I took full responsibility for a new cryogenic setup and began working on a new research line in my group, where I am primarily investigating microwave devices with metallic and semiconducting weak-links. Working on dilution refrigerators, cleanroom sessions, python programming and data analysis are all part of my everyday routine. If you are familiar with acronyms like EBL, AWG, ax.plot(), we're speaking the same language!
