Masoud Mohseni is a Senior Research Scientist at Google Quantum Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, where he develops novel quantum optimization and machine learning algorithms. A former research scientist and a principal investigator at the Research Laboratory of Electronics at MIT, Dr. Mohseni has been a scientific consultant at leading industry initiatives on unconventional computing. He obtained his Ph.D in physics in 2007 from University of Toronto. He then moved to Harvard University to complete a postdoctoral program in quantum simulation. Dr. Mohseni’s current research addresses some of the fundamental problems at the interface of artificial intelligence, quantum computing, and physics of complex systems. He has also made seminal contributions to the theory of coherent energy transfer in biological systems. He is an author and the leading editor of the first scientific book on Quantum Effects in Biology that has been published by Cambridge University Press.
