Staff Bios

Bio – Sage

Dr. Jeremy Sage is a Principal Investigator in the Research Laboratory of Electronics (RLE) at MIT and a Technical Staff Member at MIT Lincoln Laboratory.  He co-leads the trapped ion quantum information processing group at MIT-LL and has managed multiple trapped-ion quantum computing programs. Dr. Sage has expertise in high-fidelity, multi-species trapped-ion quantum control and has extensively studied noise in both trapped-ion and superconducting qubit systems.  His research is also focused on the development of integrated photonics and electronics for robust, many-ion control and measurement.

Dr. Sage received a B.S in Physics/Mathematics from Brown University and a Ph.D. in Physics from Yale University.  At Yale his research was focused on laser cooling and trapping of neutral atoms and molecules.
