Sonia Lopez Alarcon
BS, Ph.D., Complutense University of Madrid (Spain)
Dr. Sonia Lopez Alarcon received a Bachelor of Physic degree in Physic and Master degree in Device Physics in 2002 from the University Complutense of Madrid. In her latest college years she worked at Lucent Technologies, Madrid, and Fundetel at Polytechnic University of Madrid, were she became familiar with the design and fabrication process of integrated circuits. In 2003 she started working toward a PhD degree in Computer Engineering at the University Complutense of Madrid, working on cache hierarchy in simultaneous multithreaded architectures. She graduated in 2009, and she joined the Department of Computer Engineering at the Rochester Institute of Technology in the fall of 2009, where she teaches Computing Architecture and Quantum Computing related courses. Her current research interest is on Quantum Computing and heterogeneous hardware solutions. She is particularly interested in the compilation process of quantum circuits, their scalability and resilience to error. For more information, please visit her personal website.
