Associate Professor Natalia Ares works on experiments to advance the development of quantum technologies, with a focus on artificial intelligence for quantum device control and quantum thermodynamics. She joined the Materials Department at the University of Oxford in 2013. She was awarded a series of fellowships, including a Marie Skłodowska-Curie and a Royal Society University Research Fellowship, and was awarded a European Research Council Starting Grant in 2020. During her PhD she focused on silicon-based devices for quantum computing at CEA Grenoble, France. She completed her undergraduate studies in Physics and a Masters equivalent in the theory of quantum chaos at the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina, where she was born and raised. In October 2021 she was appointed as Associate Professor in the Department of Engineering Science and Tutorial Fellow at New College.

Research Interests: Combining the necessary parts (and proposing methods where there are gaps) to achieve fully automated tuning of semiconducting qubits. This will lead to an understanding of how highly complex algorithms can work together to contribute to the final goal of scalable quantum computers.
