Joe Salfi

Assistant Professor

Electrical and Computer Engineering

Faculty of Applied Science

Joe Salfi is an electrical engineer and quantum physicist whose research targets the investigation, realization and assembly of building blocks for quantum information systems that could one day perform calculations well beyond the abilities of classical information technologies. These systems include quantum computers and quantum simulators, transformational technologies promising far reaching applications in optimization, machine learning, design of materials, and information security. Joe’s work includes optimizing the coherence and scalability of quantum bits, engineering the interactions of qubits for quantum computers and simulators, and building hybrid systems of spin qubits and microwave photons. Joe is very interested in special purpose quantum simulators, where the first real applications of post-cryptography quantum technologies will probably be realized.
