Biography

Dr. Robert Schoelkopf is a William A. Norton Professor of Applied Physics and Physics at Yale University. He received his A.B. in physics from Princeton University in 1986, and then spent two years as an electrical/cryogenic engineer at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, developing low-temperature radiation detectors and cryogenic instrumentation for future space missions. He completed his education at the California Institute of Technology, receiving his Ph.D. in physics in 1995. Since then, he has been at Yale University, first as a postdoctoral associate and lecturer, then joining the faculty as an assistant professor in 1998. His present research interests center around the physics of nanostructures and single-electron devices, as well as their application to problems in metrology, ultrasensitive detectors, and quantum computation.
