Tzu-Ming Lu received his BS from National Taiwan University in 2004 and his PhD from Princeton University in 2011. He studied quantum phenomena associated with low-dimensional electron systems for his thesis. After graduate school, he joined Sandia National Laboratories as a postdoc, studying silicon-based spin qubits. He is currently a Senior Member of the Technical Staff at Sandia. His research topics include spin-based quantum computing, spin-orbit coupling, and quantum behavior of nanoscale structures. He is also a Center for Integrated Nanotechnologies (CINT) scientist, supporting user projects on quantum materials and quantum information science.
Theoretical chemist Todd Martínez develops and applies new methods that predict and explain how atoms move in molecules. These methods are used both to design new molecules and to understand the behavior of those that already exist. His research group studies the response of molecules to light (photochemistry) and external force (mechanochemistry). Photochemistry is a critical part of human vision, single-molecule spectroscopy, harnessing solar energy (either to make fuels or electricity), and even organic synthesis. Mechanochemistry represents a novel scheme to promote unusual reactions and potentially to create self-healing materials that resist degradation. The underlying tools embody the full gamut of quantum mechanical effects governing molecules, from chemical bond breaking/formation to electron/proton transfer and electronic excited states.
Martínez received his PhD in chemistry from UCLA in 1994. After postdoctoral study at UCLA and the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, he joined the faculty at the University of Illinois in 1996. In 2009, he joined the faculty at Stanford, where he is now the Ehrsam and Franklin Professor of Chemistry and Professor of Photon Science at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. He has received numerous awards for his contributions, including a MacArthur Fellowship (commonly known as the “genius award”). He is co-editor of Annual Reviews in Physical Chemistry, associate editor of The Journal of Chemical Physics, and an elected fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
Current research in the Martínez lab aims to make molecular modeling both predictive and routine. New approaches to interactive molecular simulation are being developed, in which users interact with a virtual-reality based molecular modeling kit that fully understands quantum mechanics. New techniques to discover heretofore unknown chemical reactions are being developed and tested, exploiting the many efficient methods that the Martínez group has introduced for solving quantum mechanical problems quickly, using a combination of physical/chemical insights and commodity videogaming hardware.

Title: Associate Professor of Physics ad Astronomy, Tufts University/Senior Scientist, Computer Science Initiative
Expertise: Quantum Computing
In 2015 Love joined the Physics Department at Tufts University as an Associate Professor with Tenure.

He serves as the Chair of the Scientific Advisory Board of Zapata Computing, Inc., a Boston-based quantum software startup. He is a member of FQXi.
In quantum information science Love has worked broadly on quantum simulation, including work on quantum simulation of quantum chemistry and high energy physics and on quantum lattice-gas and quantum cellular automata models. Love has also worked on adiabatic quantum computing, the theory of entanglement, on semiclassical descriptions of quantum information including wigner functions for qubits and qudits, and on efficient simulation of subtheories of quantum mechanics that lack contextuality.
An assistant scientist in Argonne National Laboratory’s Center for Molecular Engineering and Materials Science Division.
My research focus is on point-defects (vacancies and dopants) in various semiconductors (Si, SiC, Y2O3, etc.) for material science and quantum information processing. I am interested in searching for the optimal defects and substrates depending on their applications, expanding on state-of-the-art understanding of charge, optical and spin properties. Applications include hybrid spin-mechanical quantum systems, decoherence mitigation, quantum communication and quantum and classical sensing.
In 2008, I received my bachelor’s degree in applied physics from ENS Cachan and Université Paris 11, Orsay. I went on to receive my master’s in nanophysics in 2011 from the Saclay Campus near Paris and my Ph.D. in quantum physics in 2015 from the University of Oxford. From 2015 to 2019, I performed research as a postdoctoral fellow in the Awschalom group at the Institute for Molecular Engineering at the University of Chicago. There, my research focused on spin defects in silicon carbide and related hybrid systems for quantum information.
My research has led to a patent application for technology related to charge conversion of defects in solid-state materials, and I have published more than 20 papers in high-impact journals.
Susan Clark has been a scientist at Sandia National Laboratories since 2013 where she has worked on a variety of quantum information-related projects on different platforms, including trapped ions and gate-defined quantum dots in silicon. She is currently the PI of the DOE-funded Quantum Scientific Computing Open User Testbed (QSCOUT) at Sandia, a project which aims to build, maintain, and provide access to quantum hardware based on trapped ions to scientists around the world.
