Joël Abrahams (Amstelveen, 1996) studied Computer Science at the TU Delft and received his BSc in 2018 before studying Cyber Security at the TU Delft. In 2020, he started his master’s project as part of Stephanie Wehner’s group to investigate the security of the quantum network stack’s classical data plane. This classical data plane is used for transportation of classical control messages to facilitate entanglement generation on the quantum data plane. More specifically, Joël is investigating the effect of the computational and propagation delay incurred by authentication of the classical data plane on the overall quantum channel performance.
In his spare time, Joël enjoys studying the classical school of piano. He focusses mainly on compositions by figures such as Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin, and Liszt. Furthermore, to gain a deeper understanding of the world around him, his interests are quite broad, ranging from philosophy and world history to quantum mechanics and programming languages.
