Greetings, Q-FARM!
Firstly, I want to congratulate my brilliant colleague – and inaugural Q-FARM Director – Professor Jelena Vučković on her election to the National Academy of Sciences!

I’d like to present two recent Q-FARM graduates: Melissa Guidry (2023) and Ilan Rosen (2021). Read their advice for pursuing a degree at Stanford and learn more about their research.

This summer the Q-FARM community was invited to gather for lunch during July, August, and September. Read more about our fun, informal lunches organized by many of our post-docs.

Do you have an idea or suggestion? We’d love to hear it! Please connect with us at, or drop by my office in Varian!
See you around!


Jonathan Simon
