Assistant Professor of Computational Materials Science, Harvard University
Prineha Narang is a Professor at the John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Harvard University. Prineha’s work has been recognized by many awards and special designations, including being named a Moore Inventor Fellow by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation for innovations in quantum science and technology, CIFAR Azrieli Global Scholar by the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research, a Top Innovator by MIT Tech Review (MIT TR35), and a Young Scientist by the World Economic Forum in 2018. In 2017, she was named by Forbes Magazine on their “30under30” list for her work in atom-by-atom quantum engineering. Prineha designs materials at the smallest scale, using single atoms, to enable the leap to quantum technologies. She has pioneered work in classical and quantum computing to approach problems in physics and chemistry with a new toolkit. At SEAS she designed and teaches ES 170, a popular undergraduate class on quantum engineering. Outside of science, she is an avid triathlete and runner.
