Daniel Bafia

, Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory

Daniel Bafia is an associate scientist at the superconducting quantum materials and systems center at Fermilab studying the origins of RF loss in materials used in the fabrication of 3-D resonators and superconducting qubits. In addition to his research, he currently serves as the cavity technical lead at Fermilab for the LCLS-II HE project. He obtained his PhD from Illinois Institute of Technology in 2020 where he focused on understanding the origins of loss in niobium superconducting radio-frequency cavities which won him first place at the IPAC’19 conference student poster competition.
