Trailer for the "PQI Mindset" series that profiles five PhD students working in quantum science. These students describe how their mindset evolved over the course of their studies, and give advice to beginning students.

Dengyu Yang is a third year graduate student studying physics at the University of Pittsburgh. She describes how her mindset has evolved over the course of her studies and offers advice for new students.

The Pittsburgh Quantum Institute is promoting inter-university collaboration with entertaining bubble soccer matches. PQI will be organizing regular bubble soccer events.  If there is sufficient interest, we will also try to organize a regular pickup soccer game (indoor/outdoor) on the Pitt campus or elsewhere.

Pedram Roushan was born and raised in Iran. In 2001, he moved to the US as a religious refugee and attended Pitt, where he graduated summa cum laude in 2005. During his years at Pitt, he worked at the laboratories of X. L. Wu and W. Goldberg, focusing on the dynamics in 2D fluids. He received his PhD in 2011 from Princeton University, performing the first scanning tunneling microscopy on the surface of topological insulators in the lab of A. Yazdani. After three years of post-doctoral studies in the J. Martinis lab at the University of California, Santa Barbara, in 2014 he joined the Google quantum hardware lab aiming on making a quantum computer. The current focus of his research is on simulating condensed matter systems with engineered quantum platforms.
