Attila Geresdi is a high-profile recruitment for MC2. He is originally from Hungary, where he got his PhD at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics in 2011. There he used Andreev reflection as a tool to detect magnetism on the nanoscale and to investigate memristive materials. He is currently based at Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) in the Netherlands but will thus move to Gothenburg later this summer. At TU Delft he belongs to the advanced research center for Quantum Computing and Quantum Internet, QuTech.
In his introductory lecture, in front of many interested MC2 colleagues to be, he talked on the topic "Particle physics on a chip: towards Andreev artificial materials".
During the lecture, coffee and cinnamon buns were served in the informal canyon environment.
