Joey Barreto was born and raised in sunny Los Angeles, California. After studying at UC Berkeley and a year in industry, he moved to Delft in 2019 to see more of the world, and learn a thing or two about qubits along the way. He joined QuTech in 2020, as a member of the Borregaard Group in the Quantum Internet Division. He is currently working on developing a robust framework for characterizing superconducting qutrits.
In his spare time, Joey enjoys rock climbing, hiking, traveling, and photography, and loves all kinds of puzzles and riddles. He also spends too much time reading random Wikipedia pages.
