Past Recipients of Q-FARM Fellowships

Main content start

The QFARM student fellowships are awarded to advanced graduate students working in quantum science and engineering. Fellowship criteria are excellence in their research, and demonstrated potential for building new links within the Stanford quantum community. Each of the awardees will receive two years of funding.

2020 Q-FARM Fellows
2020-21 Q-FARM Fellows

Kfir Dolev and Ryotatsu Yanagimoto

Kfir Dolev, PhD candidate, Physics (pictured left)
Research focus: I intend to research the structure and implications of relativistic quantum tasks, meaning protocols which require a collection of individuals to collaborate in order to move and process quantum information through spacetime in a desired manner. Advisors: Prof. Ayfer Ozgur, Electrical Engineering and Prof. Patrick Hayden, Physics

Ryotatsu Yanagimoto, PhD candidate, Applied Physics (pictured right) 
Research focus: Dynamics of emergent ultra-broadband photonic devices operated in the highly-quantum regime are intrinsically intractable in general due to the immense dimensions of state space involved. My research interests are in developing new theoretical frameworks to unravel and exploit the rich quantum dynamics of broadband optics for quantum engineering and information. Advisor: Prof. Hideo Mabuchi

2019 Q-FARM Fellows
2019 Q-FARM Inaugural Fellows

Yudan Guo and Yihui Quek

The inaugural recipients of the 2019 Q-FARM student fellowships are

Yudan Guo (Physics) is member of Prof. Benjamin Lev’s research group, LevLab. Yudan's research is centered on many-body cavity QED. 

Yihui Quek (Applied Physics) is in Prof. Weissman’s Compression group. Her research areas are quantum Shannon theory and near-term quantum algorithms.
