JQI Fellow Jake Taylor Gold Medal Award recipient


Dr. Taylor is honored for spearheading the efforts of the Office of Science and Technology Policy to expand and coordinate U.S. Government efforts in quantum information science to ensure continued U.S. global leadership in the fiercely competitive fields of quantum computing, technologies, and communication. He coordinated with several Federal agencies to craft a comprehensive U.S. policy in quantum science, organized the U.S. stakeholder community, and worked closely with policy teams both within and outside the White House to integrate Administration approaches with legislative efforts.
