Connor on top of Sleeping Giant
Connor has been awarded the 2018 NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. This program recruits high-potential, early-career scientists and engineers and supports their graduate research training in STEM fields. He is today featured in our member spotlight.
Stefan Krastanov
Stefan received the 2018 Yale Graduate School Disciplinary Outreach Service Award for his actively contribution to many outreach activities at Yale, including the recent Engineering Day. He is today featured in our member spotlight.
Chris Axline by his plane
Chris grew up in Los Angeles and studied Physics at UC Santa Barbara, graduating in 2012. Before coming to Yale, he worked on a piezoelectric control system for microfluidic particle detectors in Andrew Cleland’s group at USCB. The work overlapped with the quantum information field, an exciting...
Yvonne Gao picture
Yvonne studied physics in Oxford University and worked on theoretical quantum optics during a gap year in Singapore. Finding the subject extremely interesting, she wanted to perform experiments that can test the concepts she worked on. She then joined Rob Schoelkopf’s group in 2012 as a graduate...
Quantum computing artwork from Software Engineering Daily
Zlatko Minev talks to Software Engineering Daily, a podcast that features interviews about technical software topics. Subjects discussed in this episode describes how qubits work, which algorithms quantum computing impacts, and which parts of modern computer architecture will work on a quantum...
Anirudh Narla picture
Anirudh Narla first entered the quantum world when he did his undergrad in Engineering Physics at UC Berkeley in Irfan Siddiqi’s group where he build a pump-free dry dilution-fridge and its associated control electronics and software, as well as some microwave devices for use with their...
Uri was born in Donetsk, Ukraine and grew up in Jerusalem, Israel. He started his quantum career at the the Hebrew University in Jerusalem in Nadav Katz’s group where he did theory for quantum system by simulating and benchmarking multi-level qubit gates.
Sre playing the flute
Sreraman grew up in Chennai (India) and received his Bachelors degree from Loyola college, Chennai. During his undergraduate days, he got interested in theoretical quantum information and published two papers in Physical Review A. He obtained his masters from the Erasmus Mundus program in Europe...
Jacob started his career in the quantum in Alex Kuzmich’s group at Georgia Tech where he worked on quantum optics experiments principally using trapped atomic Rubidium for coherent frequency conversion between optical and telecommunications frequencies.  His duties there also lead him work on...
Teresa's picture
Teresa grew up in Minnesota and received her B.S. degrees in Math and Physics from University of Minnesota. She explored several research subjects before finding a calling in experimental condensed matter, first exploring spintronics in ferromagnet/ semiconductor hetero-structures before...
