Profile

Andrew Cleland specializes in experimental quantum information, in particular on the development of superconducting quantum circuits for applications to quantum computing, quantum communication and hybrid quantum systems. He currently focuses on methods to convert quantum information between stationary qubits and itinerant, traveling qubits, including microwave phonons and microwave and infrared photons. Of interest are both practical applications as well as the development of fundamental quantum science. Cleland led the team that built the first quantum machine, which earned recognition as the “Breakthrough of the Year 2010” honors from Science (AAAS). The same work was named a top-ten discovery of 2010 by Physics World, which also listed a related project of Cleland’s as a top-ten discovery of 2011. He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society as well as a Fellow of the American Association of Arts and Sciences, and a Distinguished Sigma Xi Lecturer. He received a BS degree in Engineering Physics and a PhD in Physics from the University of California – Berkeley. He was on the faculty of the physics department of the University of California – Santa Barbara from 1997-2014, before joining the Institute for Molecular Engineering at the University of Chicago.
