Nicole Thomas graduated from the University of Washington Electrical Engineering program in 2014. In this talk, she will discuss how a company such as Intel can contribute to research efforts by leveraging existing process technologies and infrastructure, especially for silicon-based qubits. She will briefly introduce the Si quantum dot based qubit system, and some of her team’s recent results. Finally, she will discuss her experience transitioning into the industry after graduation.

About the Womxn in Nanotechnology and Science Speaker Series

Thanks to a generous gift from the Washington Research Foundation, the WNF launched in 2017 a quarterly speaker series focusing on womxn’s expertise and career accomplishments in Nanotechnology and Science. Our main goal is to reach out to and spike curiosity among womxn and other underrepresented students towards careers in Nanotech and Science.

Why is “womxn” spelled with an X?

The WNF adopted the name “Womxn in Nanotechnology and Science Speaker Series” to show solidarity with the trans community, and is one of the many ways that we seek to promote intersectionality in our speaker series, and in nanotechnology, science, and engineering more generally. Intersectionality acknowledges that distinct forms of discrimination intersect, overlap, and reinforce each other, and takes into account discrimination based not only on gender but also race, sexual orientation, gender identity, nationality, faith, class, disability, immigration status and other backgrounds.
