Majorana bound states are zero-energy excitations that are predicted to exhibit non-Abelian statistics upon exchange. While spectroscopic signatures of these excitations were reported in several experimental platforms including semiconducting wires and atomic chains, controlling Majorana bound states in these platforms is still an elusive goal. In this talk, I will describe our current efforts aiming to address challenges elated to establish control over Majorana bound states realized in arrays of magnetic atoms placed on a superconducting island of a nanoscale size.
