Zlatko Minev, Ph.D.

I'm a scientist with an applied experimental and theoretical background, focused on quantum computing and fundamental physics. I hold a permanent research position at IBM TJ Watson. My Ph.D. in Applied Physics is from Yale University, with Michel Devoret's lab.  I studied the fundamental nature of quantum predictability and randomness, scalable hardware architectures for quantum computers, electromagnetic and Hamiltonian design of superconducting quantum circuits, and more...  My B.A. in Physics is from UC Berkeley, with Irfan Siddiqi's Quantum Nano Electronics lab.

I founded and led a multi-university science-outreach organization, Open Labs, to inspire underrepresented students to pursue careers in the sciences. For the impact of Open Labs at Yale and throughout the North East and my six years of leadership, I received the Yale-Jefferson Award for Public Service.
