Sydney-based quantum technology startup Q-CTRL has named Dr Tom Stace as its new Principal Quantum Control Engineer.
Stace comes from University of Queensland, where he was most recently Deputy Director of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Engineered Quantum Systems (EQUS.)
“It is exciting to join a team with a global vision to develop new quantum technologies and businesses that will change the way the world operates,” said Stace in a statement.
“There are tremendous opportunities to improve sensors and information processing in an impactful way that Q-CTRL has taken a leadership role in.”
As its name suggests, Q-CTRL specialises in quantum control engineering, building sensors and software that is “useful in real-world settings” such as data centres and aircraft.
“One of our company’s core values is to ‘be revered’ by building products, an ethos, and an environment that makes others aspire to work with us,” said the company’s CEO and founder, Professor Michael Biercuk.
“I don’t think we could ask for a greater vote of confidence than having Dr. Stace join our team. He joins other exceptional researchers who see Q-CTRL as truly the best environment in the world to advance the field of quantum technology.”
Stace finished a PhD at University of Cambridge’s Cavendish Lab, and was an ARC Future Fellow between 2015 and 2019. His research has involved device physics for “quantum computing, solid-state and atomic systems, quantum error correction, and quantum measurement and precision sensing.”
