Solution Architect for the Quantum Engineering Solutions - Keysight Technologies
Nizar Messaoudi (Student Member IEEE) is the Solution Architect for the Quantum Engineering Solutions team at Keysight Technologies, Inc., where he is responsible for developing advanced, scalable electronic control systems for multiple qubit and quantum technologies. Prior to this, he worked as an RF/uW Application Engineer at Keysight, supporting customers and enabling their success in several industries including Quantum Computing, 5G, Satellite Communications, and IoT. He also taught at the University of Waterloo, training well over 3000 engineers in the art of making RF measurements and managing the undergraduate RF and microwave laboratory. He is currently pursuing his Doctor of Philosophy in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Waterloo, with a specialty in Quantum Information. Previously, he received his Master of Applied Science degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Waterloo, and his Bachelor of Applied Science degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Calgary. His current research interests include Josephson Parametric Amplifiers (JPA) and their applications for qubit readout and producing squeezed states for quantum illumination. In conjunction with his role at Keysight, he is also investigating the effects of classical control electronics imperfections on quantum devices.
