In 2019, Mikko Möttönen was appointed to his present post as an Associate Professor (tenured) of Quantum Technology shared between Aalto University and VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland. He also co-founded a quantum-computer company IQM as a spinout from his research.

Presently, Mikko’s QCD Labs focuses on integrating engineered normal-metal reservoirs into quantum-mechanically behaving electronic devices such as superconducting qubits.
