Consider joining us for a weekly seminar (and lunch!) on Wednesdays from 11:30AM-1:00PM in PAB 102-103. We continue to have engaging speakers, topics, and conversations. Our past seminars are always available on our YT channel, @qfarmstanford.

Last, but certainly not least, please join me in a fond farewell to Nilendri Senanayake! She has handed over the reins to Junna Gui as Q-FARM Program Manager. Welcome Junna and best wishes to Nilendri!

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!
