Quantum Engineering Summer Seminar Series: Peter McMahon, PhD [quantum annealing] (Cornell University)
August 12 at 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
About the Series: The Quantum Engineering Summer Seminar Series is hosted by the Quantum Engineering Graduate Association (QEGA) every Friday at 12:00 – 1:00 pm EDT throughout the summer months and will be followed by a separate Fall series. The series invites leading world leading experts across academia, industry, and government working on experimental, theoretical, and policy aspects of quantum science and engineering. Each seminar will be followed by a 10 minute networking session with the invited speaker.

Join QEGA: The Quantum Engineering Graduate Association (QEGA) is a new organization at Penn founded by Nima Leclerc and Noah Johnson, two Penn ESE PhD students in the Sigillito Group. QEGA’s goal is to increase graduate student and faculty engagement in quantum engineering at Penn through school-wide events such as this seminar series, quantum-career networking opportunities, and a quantum engineering outreach program program. If you would like to stay connected with us, please email Nima at email@example.com with the subject line ‘qega listserv’ to get added to our mailing list!
