Jacob Bringewatt

Congratulations to Jacob Bringewatt for receiving a Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellowship (DOE CSGF).  Established in 1991, the fellowship was devised “to train and produce the next generation of leaders in computational science.”  The 2018-2019 incoming class includes twenty-six awardees from all over the country.

Bringewatt was a researcher with the Joint Center for Quantum Information and Computer Science (QuICS) while a physics undergraduate, and will continue this work as he begins his graduate studies here in the fall. He is currently working with co-advisors Stephen Jordan and Bill Dorland. In February of this year, he was the first author on a paper with Jordan, Dorland and NIST researcher Alan Mink comparing the performance of quantum adiabatic computation with local stoquastic Hamiltonians to classical simulation of those problems with diffusion Monte Carlo.
