Nélson Muga talked to the "90 Segundos de Ciência" podcast about QuantaGenomics, a project that uses quantum technologies to develop and support secure multi-agent computing systems. This type of computing makes it possible to process sensitive data such as genomic information.

QuantaGenomics is a QuantERA ERA-NET Cofund in Quantum Technologies project with a focus on the development of a quantum-enabled secure multiparty computation service for collaborative genomic medicine. The consortium of this project is composed of several partners: Instituto de Telecomunicações (IT), Portugal; Sorbonne Université (SU), France; French National Institute for Research in Digital Science and Technology (INRIA), France; Ophiomics, Portugal; Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM), Spain; Institut de Ciències Fotòniques (ICFO), Spain.

Nelson Muga graduated in Physics, has a Master’s in Applied Physics, and holds a Ph.D. in Physical Engineering. His primary research interests encompass high-speed optical communication systems and quantum secure optical communications.
