Scientific Advisors

(co-founder, Board Member) 

Supratik Guha is Professor at the Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering, University of Chicago and holds a joint appointment at Argonne National Laboratory (2015 to present). He is one of the few scientists who has held senior executive positions in industrial R&D, in the U.S. National Laboratory system, and as a tenured professor at a leading research university. At Argonne, he has been Director of the Nanoscale Science and Technology Division and Science Advisor to the Director of Argonne. In this latter position he ran Argonne’s overall science strategy during 2018-2019. Supratik was named a member of the National Academy of Engineering (NAE) in 2015 for his contributions to field effect transistor technology. He is also currently a Department of Defense Vannevar Bush Fellow.

Prof. Paul Kwait

Dr. Paul Kwiat is a John Bardeen Chair in Electrical Engineering and Physics. He has done pioneering research on the phenomena of quantum interrogation, quantum erasure, and optical implementations of quantum information protocols. He is a primary inventor of the world's first two sources of polarization-entangled photons from down-conversion, which have been used for quantum cryptography, dense-coding, quantum teleportation, entanglement distillation, and most recently, optical quantum gates. Dr. Kwiat’s research focuses on developing resources for optical quantum information processing, e.g., single-, entangled-, and hyper-entangled photon sources, quantum memories, etc., and applying these to a range of QIS problems. He currently serves as the inaugural Director of the Illinois Quantum Information Science and Technology Center (IQUIST). 

Prof. Yuri Vlasov

Dr. Yurii Vlasov is a John Bardeen Endowed Chair in Electrical and Computer Engineering and Physics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Prior to joining the UIUC in 2016, Dr. Vlasov held various research and managerial positions at the IBM T.J. Watson Research Center in N.Y. where he led broad company-wide efforts in integrated silicon nanophotonics and more recently in neuromorphic computing architectures. He initiated the Silicon Nanophotonics project in 2001 and managed it for over 15 years from its early fundamental research stage up to commercial manufacturing of optical transceivers for large-scale datacenters and supercomputers. The technology has been fully qualified and deployed for commercial production at GlobalFoundries.
