About

Alexey Gorshkov is an adjunct associate professor in the Department of Physics and UMIACS. He is also a physicist in the Quantum Measurement Division of NIST and a Fellow in the Joint Center for Quantum Information and Computer Science (QuICS) and the Joint Quantum Institute.

Gorshkov leads a theoretical research group working at the interface of quantum information science, quantum optics, atomic and molecular physics, and condensed matter physics. 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.

    New Perspective Blends Quantum and Classical to Understand Quantum Rates of Change

    March 7, 2022

    There is nothing permanent except change. This is perhaps never truer than in the fickle and fluctuating world of quantum mechanics. The quantum world is in constant flux. The properties of quantum particles flit between discrete, quantized states without any possibility of ever being found in an intermediate state. How quantum states change defies normal intuition and remains the topic of active debate—for both scientists and philosophers.

    JQI Graduate Student Is Finalist for Hertz Fellowship

    February 18, 2022

    Elizabeth Bennewitz, a first-year physics graduate student at JQI and QuICS, has been named a finalist for a 2022 Hertz Fellowship. Out of more than 650 applicants, Bennewitz is one of 45 finalists with a chance of receiving up to $250,000 in support from the Fannie and John Hertz Foundation. The fellowships provide up to five years of funding for recipients pursuing a Ph.D.
