Kyle Serniak is a research scientist and team lead at the Lincoln Laboratory and the Research Laboratory of Electronics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Before joining MIT, he received a PhD 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, Serniak graduated with a BS in physics and applied mathematics from Florida State University. His research focuses on the physics of superconducting quantum devices with the goal of improving the performance of superconducting qubits.


Informing Potential Remedies for Quasiparticle Poisoning

Measurements of the temperature distribution of quasiparticles in superconducting circuits reveal behavior that could inform strategies for mitigating quasiparticle-induced errors in superconducting qubits. Read More »
