ResearchSusan Clark joined Sandia National Laboratories as a postdoc in 2013 and was quickly promoted to technical staff in 2014. Since then, she has worked on a variety of quantum information related projects involving trapped ions and gate defined quantum dots in Silicon.
BioPrior to Sandia, she worked for Chris Monroe at University of Maryland as a postdoc demonstrating protocols for combining remote and local entanglement for building scalable quantum systems based on trapped ions. She earned her PhD from Stanford University under Yoshi Yamamoto, examining ultrafast, optical techniques for quantum manipulation of neutral donors in GaAs and ZnSe. During undergraduate study at Duke University, she developed an all-optical transistor based on a Rubidium atom cloud.
