Summit on Advancing American Leadership in Quantum Information Science
Professor Whitfield was invited to White House to discuss the future of QIS in America.
Big congratulations to Erik (Spring 2018)
Erik Weis successfully defended his senior thesis: Benchmarking Quantum Computers Using Electronic Structure Algorithms. Erik worked very hard for this. It is good that all those late hours running simulations on Rigetti's quantum computer paid off. Great job Erik! Moving forward, we wish you the best!
Kanav gets QISE-NET award from NSF
Kanav is awarded Quantum information science and engineering network (QISE-NET) award by National Science foudation. The award is aimed at having better collaboration between universities and industry. QISE-NET award recognizes a triplet of graduate student, his/her adviser and a mentor from industry. Kanav will work with Prof. Whitfield and Jarrod Mcclean from Google as his mentor. Congratulations Kanav!
Tarini accepts offer from University of Californian, Berkeley
Tarini has chosen University of California, Berkeley for her graduate studies. Tarini had some very good options to pick from. Great Tarini! We wish you good luck for all your future endeavors.
Kanav gets an Internship at IBM
Kanav will spend summer at IBM as graduate research intern.

Tarini is joining us after completing her undergraduate degree in Mathematics and Chemistry from Colby College.
Our latest paper
Hardware-efficient fermionic simulation with a cavity-QED system
New quantum simulation work with the Joint Quantum Institute (UMD) and Los Alamos National Laboratory.
Our work is aimed at better performance for superconducting quantum devices begin pursued as tomorrow's technology.
Big congratuations to Sam! (Sping 2017)
Sam Greydanus sucessfully defended his senior thesis: Approximating Matrix Product States with Machine Learning. First thesis out of the Whitfield group. Great job Sam.
Sam Greydanus '17 Represents the United States in the International Physicists' Tournament
His task was to analyze why a chain will “walk” if a short impulse is applied to a long chain spinning around a horizontal axis.
