Brin Family Chair of Theoretical Computer Science, University of Maryland

Daniel Gottesman is Brin Family Chair of Theoretical Computer Science at University of Maryland and consults for Keysight Techologies. Formerly, he was a faculty member at the Perimeter Institute in Waterloo, Ontario. He received his PhD at Caltech in 1997, and did his postdoc at Los Alamos National Lab and Microsoft Research, after which he served in the UC Berkeley CS department as a Long-Term CMI Prize Fellow with the Clay Mathematics Institute.

He is best known for developing the stabilizer code formalism for creating and describing a large class of quantum error-correcting codes, and for work on performing quantum gates using quantum teleportation. He is a Fellow of the American Physics Society.
