The aim of this project is to achieve a breakthrough in the problem of how to reliably control systems with transmon, flux, and hybrid super-semi qubits. The scalability of quantum dynamics of controlled systems is an area where several important breakthroughs recently and it impacts the ability of quantum computing to realise its full potential. This ambitious PhD project spans superconducting circuits theory, algorithms development and quantum control for probing hybrid super-semi devices. The project will involve analytical and numerical techniques in a team-based environment and in collaboration with experimental groups. The project is aligned with the work programme of the EPSRC Quantum computing and simulation hub led by Oxford University and co-funded by the hub and the University of Surrey.
