Four win Jacobus Fellowship, Princeton’s top graduate student honor

Feb. 21, 2023

Lila Rodgers, a sixth-year doctoral student in the de Leon group of computer engineering, wins the Jacobus Fellowship.

Her dissertation, “Engineering highly coherent qubits by correlating surface spectroscopy with quantum measurements” tackled engineering challenges in two different quantum systems: nitrogen-vacancy centers in diamonds and superconducting qubits. Her work has contributed directly to two very different technologies: quantum computers and quantum sensors.
