Erik Lucero

4th year graduate student, 3rd year GAANN Fellow

Research: Quantum Computation & Condensed Matter Experiment

Currently, my resarch in quantum computation is two-fold. I am diligently working on new "super-dielectric" materials (low loss amorphous Silicon) for superconducting qubits and the first solid state demonstration of Shor's Algorithm.

Diversifying Physics:

Life outside of my PhD

I enjoy running ultra-marathons (check out Santa Barbara 10 trails!) and photography.
