Milad Marvian
I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering at the University of New Mexico and also a member of the Center for Quantum Information and Control (CQuIC). Before joining UNM, I was a postdoctoral associate at MIT for two years, and before that I completed my Ph.D. in Electrical & Computer Engineering in 2018 at the University of Southern California. I am a recipient of NSF CAREER Award in 2023.
