Morgan Gillis is a master’s student in physics at Brown University. He is originally from Oakland, California. As an undergraduate, he spent summers working on double-electron quantum dot theory for quantum computers and analyzing data for the SOFIA project, a Boeing 747 plane retrofitted with an infrared telescope, at NASA Ames Research Center.
At Brown, he currently works with the supersymmetry group led by Professor Jim Gates on adinkra graph structures. A lifelong lover of computers, he enjoys harnessing their power to solve problems and make discoveries. Within physics, he is primarily interested in high energy and quantum computing.
