Shoumik Chowdhury is a graduate research fellow in the Engineering Quantum Systems (EQuS) group at MIT. He is broadly interested in experimental and applied theoretical quantum information science, with a specific focus on bosonic qubits, quantum error correction, and nonlinear dynamics in superconducting circuits.
Prior to joining EQuS, Shoumik received his B.S. in Mathematics and Physics at Yale University in 2021. At Yale, he worked with Liang Jiang on theoretical quantum transduction, and with Michel Devoret on the nonlinear dynamics of strongly-driven superconducting qubits. During this period, he also spent time working as a Quantum Engineer at Rigetti Computing, and as a Research Scientist intern at the AWS Centre for Quantum Computing. More details about these projects can be found at shoumikdc.com.
Shoumik is supported by the MIT Jacobs Presidential Fellowship and the National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship. Outside of the lab, he enjoys reading and watching movies, playing squash, cooking, and music.
