Principal Investigators

...
Professor Isaac Chuang

MIT Professor of Physics and EECS; Principal Investigator, MIT RLE Quanta Group.

Prof. Chuang is a pioneer in the field of quantum information science. His experimental realization of two, three, five, and seven quantum bit quantum computers using nuclear spins in molecules provided the first laboratory demonstrations of many important quantum algorithms, including Shor's quantum factoring algorithm. The error correction, algorithmic cooling, and entanglement manipulation techniques he developed provide new ways to obtain complete quantum control over light and matter, and lay a foundation for possible large-scale quantum information processing systems.

Prof. Chuang came to MIT in 2000 from IBM, where he was a research staff member. He received his doctorate in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University, where he was a Hertz Foundation Fellow. Prof. Chuang also holds two bachelors and one masters degrees in Physics and Electrical Engineering from MIT, and was a post-doctoral fellow at Los Alamos National Laboratory and the University of California at Berkeley. He is the author, together with Michael Nielsen, of the textbook Quantum Computation and Quantum Information. [ichaung_[at]_mit.edu]

Dr. Jeremy Sage

MIT Principal Investigator; MIT Lincoln Laboratory Senior Staff.

Jeremy Sage is a senior staff member in the Quantum Information and Integrated Nanosystems Group at MIT Lincoln Laboratory, where he co-leads the trapped-ion quantum information processing projects, and is a Principal Investigator in the Research Laboratory of Electronics (RLE) at MIT. His current research is focused on the science and engineering of trapped-ion and integrated-photonic systems for quantum information processing. Dr. Sage received a B.S in Physics/Mathematics from Brown University and a Ph.D. in Physics from Yale University. [je20418_[at]_mit.edu]

Senior Research Staff

...
John Chiaverini

MIT Lincoln Laboratory, Sr. Technical Staff.

Research in quantum computing and quantum sensing with trapped atomic ions, with particular focus on understanding and removing roadblocks to useful QIP systems while considering the impacts of integrated control technologies on potential system architectures.

Post-Doctoral Researchers

...
Dr. Sho Sugiura

MIT post-doctoral researcher.

Interests in condensed matter systems and the application of quantum information to ground state estimation by quantum computation.

...
Dr. Susanna Todaro

MIT post-doctoral researcher with the Quanta Group.

Post-doc working on CVQC and metastable qubit experiments. B.S. Harvey Mudd (2012) / Ph.D. NIST Boulder (February 2020). Love to dig deep into the experimental weeds. In my free (?) time, I'm a fan of stress baking, kickboxing, and the X-Men. [stodaro_[at]_mit.edu]

Graduate Students

...
Arkopal Dutt

MIT PhD Student with the Quanta Group.

Interested in the theory of quantum computation and quantum computing assisted sensing. [arkopal_[at]_mit.edu]

...
Nolan Hedglin

MIT Masters Student with the Quanta Group.

I am interested in Quantum Information Policy. To keep in shape, I lift, play rugby, and hockey. I enjoy blogging, reading science fiction, and creative writing in my free time. [nhedglin_[at]_mit.edu]

Curtis Northcutt

MIT PhD Student with the Quanta Group.

Interests: Machine Learning, Weak Supervision, and Human Intelligence.

My research focuses on two goals: (1) dataset uncertainty estimation, (2) the synergy of artificial intelligence to augment human intelligence. To this end, I established confident learning, a family of theory and algorithms for characterizing, finding, and learning with label errors in datasets, and cleanlab, the official Python framework for machine learning and deep learning with noisy labels in datasets. Some of the places I've worked at include Google AI Research (2019), Oculus Research (2018), Amazon AI (2017), Facebook AI Research (2016), Microsoft Research (2014), MIT Lincoln Lab (2013), and NASA (2009). I enjoy mountaineering, hiking, biking, and rapping. My favorite rapper is PomDP the PhD rapper. [cgn_[at]_mit.edu]

...
Zane Rossi

MIT PhD Student with the Quanta Group.

Interests: quantum algorithms, computational complexity, and adversarial models in quantum computation.

I am interested in developing new classes of quantum algorithms and proving concrete complexity separations for useful computational problems with an eye on relevance in the near-term. I want to answer questions about how can a quantum computer can efficiently prove it is solving a quantum problem specified (as specified), to a lower-power verifier, and further convert quantum information theoretic results to constructive proofs.

Jules Stuart

MIT PhD Student with the Quanta Group.

Interests: Experiments (Lincoln Laboratory)

I'm interested in applying classical technology in quantum applications, and I'm always wondering what gadgets we will be able to cram into an ion trap next. Outside of the lab, I enjoy checking out concerts, running and playing video games. [jstuart_[at]_mit.edu]
