Mercedes Gimeno-Segovia is a quantum physicist whose main scientific goal is to develop the next generation of quantum technologies. Mercedes has always been fas‐ cinated by the inner workings of conventional computers and decided to merge that interest with her passion for quantum physics; she received her PhD from Imperial College London for her work on the first photonic quantum architecture compatible with the silicon industry. As Director of Quantum Architecture at PsiQuantum, she is working on the design of a general-purpose quantum computer. When not thinking about physics, Mercedes can be found playing the violin, running (preferably on trails) and reading.
