Dr. Senko’s research focuses on using trapped ions for quantum simulations and quantum computing applications. Her work also explores qudits and how to improve the efficiency of encoding a logical unit of information using the multiple levels of a qudit.

During her doctorate research in quantum information, Senko used trapped ions to simulate a quantum computational module and to create a spin chain experiment for manipulation in the lab. She earned her PhD under the supervision of Christopher Monroe at the University of Maryland.
At the Center for Ultracold Atoms (CUA) as a postdoctoral fellow with Harvard University, Senko worked on the development of a photonic crystal waveguide that, when atoms are placed next to it, creates an interesting system for information transfer between atoms by the photons flowing through the photonic crystal.

The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Office of Indigenous Relations.
