3rd year PhD student
polacchi.1713287@studenti.uniroma1.it

She graduated in October 2020 at Sapienza Università di Roma under the supervision of prof. Fabio Sciarrino, with a thesis entitled “Experimental robust self-testing of the state generated by a quantum network”. Currently working on quantum causality for the design and experimental implementation of device-independent protocols, to investigate the presence of non-local correlations within different quantum network topologies.
