Azarin Zarassi is a graduate student in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Pitt.

She works in the Frolov lab and is assembling a Majorana qubit with a superconducting qubit to use the coupling between them to read the state of the Majorana qubit from the microwave frequency response of the resonator in the superconducting qubit. This device paves the way to future generation of quantum computers and is the beginning of many studies to exploit Majorana fermions and their unique topological features.

Azarin was a PQI Graduate Student Research Fellow in 2018/2019.

Arthur Li is a graduate student in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Pitt.

He works in the Levy lab examining quantum transport in complex oxide interfaces and graphene.

Arthur was a PQI Graduate Student Research Fellow in 2017/2018.

Dr. Susan Coppersmith is the Robert E. Fassnacht and a Vilas Professor of Physics at the University of Wisconsin, Madison.  She is a theoretical condensed matter physicist who has worked on a broad range of problems in the area of complex systems, and has made substantial contributions to the understanding of subjects including glasses, granular materials, the nonlinear dynamics of magnetic flux lattices in type-II superconductors, and quantum computing. 

Dr. Coppersmith has served as Chair of the UW-Madison physics department, as a member of the NORDITA advisory board, as a member of the Mathematical and Physical Science Advisory Committee of the National Science Foundation, and as a Trustee at the Aspen Center for Physics.  She has served as Chair of the Division of Condensed Matter Physics of the American Physical Society, as Chair of the Section on Physics of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, as Chair of the Board of Trustees of the Gordon Research Conferences, and as Chair of the External Advisory Board of the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics at the University of California, Santa Barbara.
