Nathan Gemelke

Dr. Nathan Gemelke is a co-founder of QuEra Computing, its Chief Technology Officer (CTO), and an expert in experimental atomic physics quantum simulation with neutral atoms. Prior to joining QuEra full-time, he held a research faculty appointment at Penn State University, obtained his PhD from Stanford under former Energy Secretary Steven Chu, and has over twenty years of experience conducting and leading academic research.

His work centers on the use of laser-cooled atomic gases to study organizational principles of many-body physics in the quantum limit, analog models of fundamental particle physics, and novel effects in quantum and nonequilibrium statistics.
