Jacob (Jake) Taylor is an adjunct professor in the Department of Physics and Institute for Advanced Computer Studies, and is a former co-director of QuICS.

He is also a scientist at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and a Fellow in the Joint Quantum Institute.

Taylor has published more than 50 peer-reviewed articles and developed a number of original theories that are on the cutting-edge of theoretical physics.

His research involves understanding the fundamental and practical limits to building quantum information devices, studying novel approaches to entangling atomic, photonic and solid state systems, and exploring potential applications of quantum information systems to metrology and measurement science.

Taylor received a Samuel J. Heyman Service to America Medal (Sammies) for his advanced scientific research, which has potential for advances in health care, communications, computing and technology.
