Professor Jingbo Wang received this year’s Research Mentorship Award (School of Physics, Mathematics, and Computing).
“The first quantum revolution that started 100 years ago has led to much of today’s modern technologies. We are now amidst a second quantum revolution, which involves manipulating matter at the fundamental single-particle level. This provides a wealth of new possibilities for sensing and imaging, information processing, and secure communication. However, it requires a whole new set of knowledge and skills for next-generation researchers. We are currently facing a severe shortage of graduates in quantum technology and computing. Her role is to instill a quantum mindset in students and empower them to take on the challenge of the century.”
