The 20th Annual SQuInT Workshop is currently underway in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
We had a record number of 222 registrants. Everyone’s having a great time — poster session, talks, evenings out, and a celebratory banquet tonight.
University of New Mexico Assistant Professor Elohim Becerra received a National Science Foundation (NSF) Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) award for his proposal “Quantum Measurements for Optical Communications.”
See the UNM Newsroom article. Congratulations, Dr. Becerra!
Please join us in welcoming Pablo Poggi to CQuIC as a Postdoctoral Fellow. Pablo comes to us from the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina. Pablo recently completed his PhD under the supervision of Dr. Diego Wisniacki and Dr. Fernando Lombardo. Pablo’s PhD research was focused on coherent control of quantum systems. His research interests include: Applications of optimal control techniques to relevant problems in quantum information setups such as quantum dots, superconducting circuits and ultracold atoms; quantum many-body phenomena, such as quantum phase transitions and many-body localization, and the effects of driving and dissipation in this type of systems; and the study of the quantum-to-classical transition: thermalization in quantum systems, quantum thermodynamics and quantum chaos. Pablo started work at CQuIC on January 8, 2018. Please welcome him to the CQuIC team. Pablo is looking forward to exploring the Southwest, including the state of Colorado; and also to practicing tennis in the great Albuquerque weather.
Abstracts to be considered for talks and/or posters in the scientific program may be submitted beginning on September 18, 2017 until November 22, 2017.
The 20th Annual SQuInT Workshop will take place at the historic La Fonda on the Plaza hotel in Santa Fe, NM, February 22 – 24, 2018. We plan to have special events to celebrate the 20th anniversary. We hope to see many SQuInT network researchers at the Workshop!
