Google Quantum AI
Pedram Roushan received his PhD in 2011 from Princeton University, performing the first scanning tunneling microscopy on the surface of topological insulators. After three years of post-doctoral studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara, in 2014 he joined the Google quantum hardware lab aiming to make a quantum computer. With the Google team in 2019, they performed the first computation on a quantum processor beyond the capability of a supercomputer. The current focus of his research is on simulating novel condensed matter and non-equilibrium physics with quantum processors.
