(HPCWire) Kevin Young has been named to the Department of Energy Office of Science’s Early Career Research Program, awarding him a grant to continue his work to improve the performance of modern quantum information processors.
Young co-leads Sandia’s Quantum Performance Laboratory and performs research focused on modeling, assessing and improving the performance of quantum computers. His winning proposal was entitled, “Quantum Performance Enhancement.”
Sandia National Laboratories’ Young is one of 76 researchers across the nation to receive the award and among 26 colleagues from the national labs, including three who work at the three National Nuclear Security Administration labs.
“I am gratified by the confidence in my work expressed by the DOE Office of Science,” Young said. “Sandia has a long history of investment in quantum computing research, and I would not be able to pursue this work without the support of the many excellent scientists here at the lab.”
