Before coming to the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC), Urbasi was a postdoctoral research associate working on sol-gel techniques and thin films in the Cavendish labs, Department of Physics, University of Cambridge, UK. She completed her PhD in the Materials Science department in Cambridge on superconducting and ferroelectric heterostructures and high frequency dielectric measurements using high Tc Josephson junctions as ac oscillators. Previously, she completed her MSc in Physics from Cambridge. She has been a Gates Cambridge scholar during her PhD and a Nehru-Chevening scholar during her Master's.
During her time in Cambridge, Urbasi developed skills in thin film deposition and device fabrication using lithography, etching, milling and sputtering as well as electrical and magnetic characterization of devices. Her projects there involved a combination of theory and experiment and got her interested in multidisciplinary problems.
While at IQC, she has taken a keen interest in Quantum Optics based experiments and participated in a fundamental experiment on an experimental test of Born's rule for probabilities in Quantum Mechanics. She continues to dabble in quantum optics as well as solid state quantum computing projects and is excited about taking up her new role as Associate Professor at the Raman Research Institute in Bangalore, India soon.
