Alexey Gorshkov is an adjunct associate professor in the Department of Physics. He is also a physicist in the Quantum Measurement Division of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and a Fellow in the Joint Quantum Institute. Gorshkov leads a theoretical research group working at the interface of quantum optics, atomic and molecular physics, condensed matter physics and quantum information science. The long-term goals of the group are to understand and control large interacting quantum systems, as well as to design and create new ones. He received his doctorate in physics from Harvard University in 2010.
