Andrew Cleland received his B.S. in Engineering Physics from UC Berkeley in 1983,
and a Ph.D. in Physics from UC Berkeley in 1991. He was employed from 1991 to 1993 as a
postdoctoral researcher in the Centre d'Etudes-Orme des Merisiers in Saclay, France.
He then worked as a Senior Research Fellow at Caltech until 1997, when he moved to UC
Santa Barbara as an assistant professor in the Department of Physics. He is presently
Professor of Physics and Associate Director of the California Nanosystems Institute.

His research interests include quantum computation with Josephson qubits,
the physics of nanoscale electronic, mechanical, and optomechanical devices, and
microfluidics-based cellular, viral and molecular biosensing using radiofrequency techniques.
