Carlo Delle Donne (Potenza, Italy, 1994) studied Electronics and Telecommunications Engineering (BSc) at the University of Bologna, and Embedded Systems (MSc) at TU Delft. He then joined QuTech (Delft, the Netherlands) as a PhD student in December 2018. He is working with other researchers to design and implement a software stack for quantum internet nodes, and bridge the gap between abstract quantum networking applications and complicated quantum physical hardware.

Besides being a quantum internet researcher, an embedded systems engineer and an open-source software enthusiast, Carlo enjoys travelling, visiting museums, binging movies (the weirder, the better), blasting music in his apartment, and cooking (not just pizza and lasagna). He used to do sports before starting his PhD, and he hopes to resume that soon (but perhaps “after the next deadline”).
