Kyle Serniak, Ph.D.
Technical Staff Scientist, MIT Lincoln Laboratory & Research Laboratory of Electronics
Kyle Serniak is a Technical Staff Scientist at MIT Lincoln Laboratory and the EQuS group at MIT. His research interests include the design and control of noise-protected superconducting qubits, understanding and mitigating the effects of nonequilibrium quasiparticles in superconducting devices, using quantum circuits to probe new materials systems, and the development of next-generation multi-qubit processors.
Before joining MIT, Kyle received a Ph.D. in Applied Physics from Yale University for his work in Michel Devoret’s group studying the dynamics of nonequilibrium quasiparticles in superconducting qubits. Prior to that, Kyle graduated with a B.S. in Physics and Applied Mathematics from Florida State University, where he worked in the groups of Irinel Chiorescu and Al Stiegman.
