Featured Panelists

Dr. Allan Bracker is on the Research Staff at the Naval Research Laboratory and leads a section of the Electronics Science and Technology Division in the development of semiconductor materials and photonic devices for quantum technologies. His research background is in crystal growth, device fabrication, and quantum properties of semiconductor nanostructures. He holds a PhD in Chemistry from the University of California, Berkeley.

Dr. Fredrik Fatemi is the Army’s Senior Research Scientist (ST) for Quantum Sciences. He received his PhD in molecular physics in 1998 from the University of Virginia, and then did his postdoctoral research at NIST-Gaithersburg on ultracold atom physics. He joined ARL after working at the Naval Research Laboratory for 15 years, where he led several programs in atomic, molecular, and optical physics. In 2015, he joined ARL as the Chief of the Quantum Science and Technology Branch, overseeing a portfolio of extramural and in-house research in quantum sensing and networking while maintaining an active research program in nanophotonics. He became the ST for Quantum Science in 2022. He is also the Associate Director of the Quantum Technology Center at the University of Maryland.

Dr. Aimee Gunther is the Quantum technologies from Canada’s national laboratory: Quantum Sensors Challenge Program (QSP) at the National Research Council of Canada (NRC). At the NRC, she also engages across research centres and collaborative challenge programs to shape and lead the Quantum Communications theme within the High-Throughput and Secure Networks Challenge program.

Previously, Aimee was the Scientific Advisor for Quantum at Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC) where she co-authored the DND/CAF Quantum S&T Strategy and specialized in advising and equipping senior leadership on national quantum initiatives.

Aimee has over a decade of experience communicating quantum and optical science whether it be to kids, families, or policymakers. Aimee has PhD (Quantum Information) in experimental quantum optics from the Institute for Quantum Computing at the University of Waterloo. Her research encompassed: quantum photonics, nonlinear optics, biological imaging, and ultrafast laser science.

Maria Galli graduated with bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Università Statale in Milan. During her master’s studies, she was a research assistant in Prof. Rempe’s Group at Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics in Garching bei München, while being a visiting student at the Technical University of Munich (TUM). Her master’s thesis was conducted under the supervision of Prof. Weinfurter at Ludwig Maximilian University (LMU) in Munich.
