National Labs Researchers, Andrew Baczewski (SNL) and Patrick Coles (LANL), Join CQuIC as Faculty Associates

August 21, 2019 - Gloria Cordova

Beginning January, 2019,  Andrew Baczewski, of Sandia National Laboratories (SNL) and Patrick Coles of Los Alamos National Laboratory began a partnership with CQuIC as Faculty Associates. 

Professor Baczewski is a research scientist at Sandia National Laboratories in the Quantum Computer Science department. His research focuses on semiconductor spin qubits and all aspects of quantum simulation, particularly as it applies to problems in materials science and condensed matter physics.

Professor Coles is a research scientist at Los Alamos National Lab (LANL). His current research focuses on near-term quantum computing, including hybrid quantum-classical algorithms and machine learning of quantum algorithms. Previously, he has worked on quantum cryptography, quantum information theory, and quantum foundations, and he enjoys exploring the interface between these fields and near-term quantum computing. He is also an organizer for LANL’s Quantum Computing Summer School.

We look forward to seeing Professor Baczewski  and Professor Coles at the group meetings and seminars at CQuIC and interacting with the members.
