Student Profile: Leea Stott
Physics Master's student in the Faculty of Science
I am a first year master's student working with the Silicon Quantum Technology group at SFU.
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO COME TO SFU?
I took my undergraduate degree at SFU and in that time became very eager to work with the Silicon Quantum Technology group lead by Dr. Stephanie Simmons.
TELL US ABOUT YOUR RESEARCH AND/OR PROGRAM.
The Silicon Quantum Technology group is developing a platform for quantum computing hardware based on the interaction between silicon based qubits and photons. I have been working on designing a cavity which enhances the photon-qubit interactions.
WHAT ARE YOU PARTICULARLY ENJOYING ABOUT YOUR STUDIES/RESEARCH AT SFU?
SFU has a great community of physicists. I love the excitement of working on cutting edge research as well as the opportunity to work with and learn from very experienced and knowledgeable scientists.
