Prabin Adhikari

Prabin Adhikari received his undergraduate degrees in Physics and Mathematics from St. John's University, and went on to complete a Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Maryland. At Maryland, he was a member of the Joint Quantum Institute, where he conducted theoretical research on the applications of superconducting circuits in the field of quantum information and quantum simulation. In collaboration with his colleagues, he proposed a novel technique to create a significant system exhibiting strong local three-body interactions that are normally very weak. Prabin also addressed the challenges of interfacing an ion to a superconducting circuit for quantum information processing. He has coauthored four scientific papers, one of which resulted in a patent application. While in graduate school, Prabin developed a strong interest in finance through self-study, and decided that a career in finance would be intellectually and experientially rewarding. Prabin is also very passionate about aviation and spends a lot of time training on his home made flight simulator. He is an avid reader, and enjoys swimming and tennis.
