Mirko Consiglio

PhD student

Mirko read for a BSc in mathematics and physics at the University of Malta. He is also currently reading for a PhD in physics at the University of Malta, with a thesis on hybrid quantum–classical algorithms and their applications on current noisy intermediate-scale quantum computers.

Mirko's research interests are quantum computation, quantum information, quantum entanglement and mathematical optimization.
