Natasha graduated from NUST MISIS (Moscow, Russia) in 2012 with a Master's degree in theoretical physics.
Afterwards, she did her PhD in the group of Prof. Dr. Alexey Ustinov in NUST MISIS (Moscow, Russia) and worked on superconducting metamaterials. She sucessfuly defended her PhD disertation in the end of 2015.
In the spring of 2016 she joined the group of Dr. Ioan Pop as a postdoc working on quantum Josephson junction circuits.
Lukas grew up in a small town not far from Karlsruhe.
After finishing high school he started studying physics at KIT and graduated with a Master's degree in January of 2016. For his Master thesis he decided to join the group of Prof. Dr. Alexey Ustinov where he was supervised by Dr. Martin Weides and worked on 3D transmon qubits.
During this work, Lukas got excited about the physics of superconducting quantum circuits and wanted to continue research in this field as a PhD student.
In the spring of 2016 Lukas joined Dr. Ioan Pop's group and is currently working on high kinetic inductance media for applications in superconducting quantum circuits.

Daria Gusenkova completed her Bachelor degree in Radioengineering at Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology in 2015. Participation in the International Physicist Tournament inspired her interest in the Experimental Quantum Physics which brought her to the Laboratory of Superconducting Metamaterials (MISIS, Moscow). During master studies Daria worked on the kinetic inductance detectors and traveling wave parametric amplification. She started her PhD in the Dr. Ioan Pop's group in 2017 and her current project investigates scalable quantum architectures with transverse and longitudinal coupling.
