Add to Calendar 4/4/2019 11:00 am 4/4/2019 America/Chicago Physics Careers Seminar: "Research internships as a grad (undergrad) student" DESCRIPTION:

Abstract: In this talk, I will share my experience as a research intern at the quantum computing team at NASA. I will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of taking some time off your graduate (undergraduate) work to do research in a field of your interest at a more industry related environment. For those interested in the field of quantum computing, I will talk about the current opportunities for students, as well as how physicists with seemingly unrelated backgrounds can be a good fit in this growing field.

Bio: I am a PhD student in Bryan Clark’s group, at the University of Illinois. My current focus is on computational condensed matter and, in particular, I work on the simulation of quantum lattice systems. I collaborate with NASA’s and Google’s quantum computing teams, with whom I work on the simulation of Noisy Intermediate-Scale Quantum devices for their calibration and benchmarking.
