Principal Investigator

Sara Mouradian is an Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at UW. She received her B.S., M.Eng., and PhD degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Before starting at UW she was a postdoctoral fellow at UC Berkeley. When she’s not in lab she’s probably cooking, reading, or exploring the outdoors.


Postdoctoral Assosciates

Brant Bowers is a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Scalable Quantum Research Lab. He received his B.S. from Denison University and his PhD in from the University of Texas at Austin both in Physics with a thesis focused on improving control over Laser Wakefield Accelerators. When he’s not in lab, he can likely be found working on music, cooking, or juggling his two cats without getting scratched.


Graduate Students

Ritika (Rithi) Anandwade (rih-thih-kuh (rih-thi) aah-nuhndh-waa-day) is a graduate student in the University of Washington physics department.  Prior to attending UW, she got her B.S in physics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.  When she’s not in the lab or at school she enjoys playing with her cat Ollie, reading, and exploring Seattle. 


Hae Lim is a PhD student in the ECE Department at UW. He received his BS in EE from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and MS in ECE (Electronics & Photonics) from UC Santa Barbara. He is a NSF Graduate Research Fellow and a Accelerating Quantum-Enabled Technologies Fellow. He loves traveling around the world. From the East to the West, he has visited Japan, China, Vietnam, Singapore, Indonesia, India, Egypt, Morocco, Spain, France, UK, Ireland, Iceland, and Canada other than US. When he is not in lab, he currently doesn’t have much idea what to do and is looking for a new exciting hobby.
