Heather Gray is an experimental particle physicist working on the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) just outside Geneva in Switzerland. She has broad interests in particle physics, but the primary focus of her research is the Higgs boson -- the most recently discovered elementary particle, the only known elementary scalar of nature and the final piece of the remarkably successful Standard Model. She studies the properties of the Higgs boson and, in particular, how it interacts with different types of quarks, including top, bottom and charm quarks. Other research interests include the development of track reconstruction algorithms, silicon detectors and algorithms for quantum computers. A theme throughout her research is applications of machine learning.
Areas of expertise: physics/astrophysics, quantum computing, AI/machine learning, accelerators, dark energy/dark matter, particle physics, Higgs boson
Bert de Jong leads the Computational Chemistry, Materials, and Climate Group, which advances scientific computing by developing and enhancing applications in key disciplines, as well as developing tools and libraries for addressing general problems in computational science.
de Jong is the director of the LBNL Quantum Algorithms Team QAT4Chem, the team director of the Accelerated Research for Quantum Computing (ARQC) Team AIDE-QC, both funded by DOE ASCR, focused on developing software stacks, algorithms, and computer science and applied mathematics solutions for chemical sciences and other fields on near-term quantum computing devices. He is also a co-PI on the ARQC team FAR-QC (led out of Sandia). He is also part of LBNL’s quantum testbed, developing superconducting qubits. He is the LBNL lead for the Basic Energy Sciences Quantum Information Sciences project (led out of PNNL), where he is focusing on new approaches for encoding wave functions and embedding quantum systems. In addition, he is a co-PI on an LBNL led HEP funded quantum information science projects.
de Jong is a co-PI within the DOE ASCR Exascale Computing Project (ECP) as the LBNL lead for the NWChemEx effort, contributing to the development of an exascale computational chemistry code. He is the LBNL lead for the Basic Energy Sciences SPEC Computational Chemistry Center (led out of PNNL), where he is working on reduced scaling MCSCF and beyond GW approaches for molecules.
He leads an LBNL funded effort on machine learning for chemical sciences, focused on developing deep learning networks (GANs and autoencoders) for the prediction of structure-function relationships and its inverse, with a demonstrating in mass spectrometry. As part of this effort, his team developed the ML4Chem Python package.

As an accelerator physicist in the Collider-Accelerator Department at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL), Kevin has spent over 35 years working in accelerator physics where he has gained expertise and experience in accelerator design, particle beam simulations, processing and analysis of data, particle accelerator-based data science and machine learning, as well as ion trap dynamics, crystalline beams for quantum information sciences (QIS), and ion trap-based quantum computing.
Kevin has broad experience, as a designer of the NASA Space Radiation Laboratory, a member of the RHIC design and commissioning team, and most recently as a member of the electron ion collider (EIC) project at BNL. His work extends internationally, with collaborations with researchers at CERN, Fermilab, J-PARC & KEK in Japan, as well as domestically with Stony Brook University, the University of New Mexico, and Cornell University.
Kevin and Dr. Thomas Roser are the inventors of the storage ring quantum computer, a new kind of quantum information system that utilizes a circular radio-frequency quadrupole to create an unbounded ion trap. Kevin is the principle investigator for the Storage Ring Quantum Computer project, which offers a pathway to large scale QIS.
Kevin is an author on over thirty peer reviewed publications, co-author on a book chapter in “Challenges and Goals for Accelerators in the XXI Century” (2016), and an author on over 150 conference publications. Kevin has mentored many students in his career, including three Ph.D. students from Stony Brook University.
