Dario Urbonas joined IBM Research – Zurich in 2015 in the Science and Technology department. His research goal is an analog Quantum simulator using exciton-polaritons in coupled optical microcavities. The project is a part of IBM quantum technology strategy and is partially funded by Phonsi project which is a part of Horizon 2020.
Darius is currently a PhD Researcher at IBM Research – Zurich and the ETH Zurich (D-ITET), investigating tunable coupled microcavities for enhanced light-matter interaction.
He holds a master's degree summa cum laude in laser physics and technology and a Bachelor's degree cum laude in physics from Vilnius University in Lithuania. He worked at the University of Vilnius in various positions and also joined the Center for Microphotonics at Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne, Australia as a visiting scientist.
