Susan Clark joined Sandia National Laboratories as a postdoc in 2013 and was quickly promoted to technical staff in 2014. Since then, she has worked on a variety of quantum information related projects involving trapped ions and gate defined quantum dots in Silicon. She is currently the PI of the DOE Office of Science ASCR funded program QSCOUT (Quantum Scientific Computing Open User Testbed) which has begun user experiments earlier this year. Prior to Sandia, she worked for Chris Monroe at University of Maryland as a postdoc demonstrating protocols for combining remote and local entanglement for building scalable quantum systems based on trapped ions. She earned her PhD from Stanford University under Yoshi Yamamoto, examining ultrafast, optical techniques for quantum manipulation of neutral donors in GaAs and ZnSe. During undergraduate study at Duke University, she developed an all-optical transistor based on a Rubidium atom cloud. Sandia National Laboratories is a multimission laboratory managed and operated by National Technology & Engineering Solutions of Sandia, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Honeywell International Inc., for the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration under contract DE-NA0003525.
