After spending nearly a decade studying Physics at Cambridge and leading surface acoustic wave (SAW) based quantum computing research at Hitachi Cambridge Laboratory, Pratyay was awarded an industrial fellowship from the Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851 for his innovative solution to develop an affordable Silicon-based quantum computer.
Being born and brought up in 1990s Calcutta, India, Pratyay developed a unique understanding of the social challenges that limit people to maximise their opportunity and how to address those obstacles using cutting edge data-driven research and futuristic technology —and it’s not a one-size-fits-all global solution. It’s how well you connect with the heart-beating people and their culture you’re trying to help and communicate your understanding back to them from a robust technical point of view. Pratyay has landed coverage in print and broadcast outlets around the world, including the University of Cambridge press release, Hitachi Ltd, Japan press release. His articles have been featured in various peer-reviewed journals at many conferences around the world. In addition to his extensive science and technology experience, Pratyay is an avid rower, and is a final year industrial PhD candidate for Quantum Information Physics at the Cavendish Laboratory.
