Luke Keller
He is a grade 12 student from US who is interested to work on a Physics research paper.

Luke’s two main interests outside of academics are building computer and producing music. He is in his school robotics team and he enjoys the process of designing and manufacturing of robots. He is currently taking AP Mechanics to pursue his academic interest of majoring in Physics.

Learning objective

  • The objective is to build a small version of a quantum music composer.

What challenges did he face?

  • The student faced two significant challenges: effectively managing time between mentorship activities and other commitments, and the complexity of his project on quantum algorithms, a field known for its depth and difficulty. Despite these hurdles, he showed remarkable perseverance.
  • The steep learning curve of quantum computing required intensive study and hands-on practice, which initially strained his time management.

How did our program help him?

  • Luke’s dedication to overcoming these obstacles not only enhanced his expertise in a cutting-edge technical area but also significantly improved his ability to balance demanding tasks.

Matched mentor

The mentor is a Research Assistant Professor at Materials Science and Engineering Department, Northwestern University. He has published over fifteen research journals and conference articles. Some of his skills and achievements include the development and application of TEM-based techniques and quantitative analysis. Acquisition and analysis of large datasets data acquired using pixelated direct electron detector.

My general impression of the student is overwhelmingly positive. He has demonstrated a remarkable dedication to learning and an impressive ability to tackle complex subjects, particularly in the challenging field of quantum algorithms.
