I finished my PhD in December 2017 in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of Instituto Superior Tecnico where I was associated with the Physics of Information and Quantum Technologies Group, affiliated to Instituto de Telecomunicações. Since the completion of my PhD, I have been a researcher at the Center for Quantum Information and Communication, Université libre de Bruxelles. Currently, I am an FNRS postdoctoral researcher there, with my research centred around quantum computation, with an emphasis on designing quantum algorithms that help solve optimization problems faster than classical computers. I carry with me fond memories of being a PhD student at IT and am grateful for the opportunities the Institute provided me. I also miss the lovely city of Lisbon and the time I spent there. I hope that at some different bend of the road, I can return back to Lisbon and renew my collaboration with IT, albeit in a different capacity.
