Sergioli Giuseppe



Short Biography

I was born in Siracusa (Sicily), in 1979. I studied Theoretical Physics at the University of Catania and I got my Ph.D. in History and Philosophy of Science at the University of Cagliari (Sardinia). I’m currently researching on the context of Quantum Computing and Quantum Logic.
