Marta Pita Vidal
Marta Pita-Vidal studied Mathematics and Engineering Physics at CFIS (UPC, Barcelona). Before coming to Delft, she did research stays at Frank Koppen’s group (ICFO, Castelldefells) and at Pablo Jarillo-Herrero’s group (MIT, Cambridge). There, she performed optics and electronic transport measurements to investigate properties of TMDs, graphene and other two-dimensional materials. After that, Marta received a MSc in Applied Physics from the TU Delft, where she further specialized in the area of quantum nanoscience. After a research internship at Microsoft Station Q, in Santa Barbara, numerically investigating phenomena in Josephson junctions, she is now pursuing a PhD at the Kouwenhoven Lab. She experimentally researches hybrid devices that incorporate semiconducting nanowires into superconducting circuits.
In her free time, Marta loves spending time with her friends and family. Her hobbies include painting, running and anything that makes her learn or experience new things.
