When Quantum Systems Combine

Two teams of researchers led by Marina Radulaski, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering, recently won University of California grants that promise to give scientists a better understanding of quantum information sciences—a rapidly-emerging technology that stands to transform the way society interacts with computers and technology.

Quantum Computing Hackathon Hosted by QCAD

Quantum Computing at Davis (QCAD) is organizing a Quantum Game Hackathon from January 26 to January 28 at UC Davis with participation from qcb (Quantum Computing @ Berkeley) and QCSA (Quantum Computing Student Association at UCLA). The aim of the hackathon is to introduce quantum computing concepts to people from all backgrounds by redesigning popular games with all the fun and spookiness of quantum computing. 

Design a game that will be played at the 2023 Picnic Day!

Club Spotlight: Quantum Computing at Davis

Quantum Computing at Davis (QCD) is a student research group that aims to educate undergraduate and graduate students in quantum information sciences by providing them with hands-on projects and workshops. They foster the quantum community at UC Davis through collaborations between faculty and students and facilitate the transition from top-quality coursework to publishable work. 

Announcing QuIST Colloquium for Fall 2022

We are delighted to announce the Quantum Information Science and Technology (QuIST) Colloquium under the College of Engineering Next Level Idea initiatives. This is an interdisciplinary speaker series, aimed at graduate and advanced undergraduate students in engineering and science departments. Colloquia will give a window to research topics pursued internationally by renowned researchers, as well as on campus by UC Davis faculty.

Electrical and Computer Engineering Professor Marina Radulaski Earns Google Research Scholar Award for Quantum Computing

UC Davis electrical and computer engineering (ECE) professor Marina Radulaski recently earned a Google Research Scholar award for her work in quantum computing. 

The Research Scholar Program aims to support early-career professors pursuing research in fields relevant to Google. The Program provides unrestricted gifts to support research at institutions worldwide and focuses on world-class funding research conducted by early-career professors. 

Martin Fraas named 2021 Hellman Fellow

Martin Fraas, Assistant Professor of Mathematics, has been named a 2021 Hellman Fellow. He will be pursuing the project entitled Microscopic Theory of Anyons in the Fractional Quantum Hall Effect. The Hellman family inaugurated the Hellman Fellows Program in 1994 to support junior faculty research by making grants to junior faculty at 14 institutions: the ten campuses of the University of California along with the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, Harvard Business School, Stanford University, and Williams College. Congratulations Martin!
