Andrea Orzati continues this tradition: he obtained his PhD at the ETH Zurich, as well as an EMBA at the HEC Lausanne.

“As a former scientist, I am proud to work in a company that has launched the first commercially available quantum computing control system, and I am fascinated with the scale-up challenge in the community. Exciting times are ahead of us! The vision of Zurich Instruments as a company of scientists for scientists continues, but with an increased ability to deliver cutting-edge hardware, software, and services to a wider scientific community”, concludes Andrea Orzati.
