Background: 

What would happen to computing – and all the important work we use computers for - if today’s space and time limits were no longer relevant? That's the future that could be suggested by the work of quantum physicist and nanotechnology specialist Lin Tian at UC Merced. Bringing her impressive experience from MIT and Stanford, Tian collaborates with other physicist and nanomechanical engineers at UC Merced toward bringing that future to pass.

Tian can comment on the future of computing and applications of nanotechnology and quantum physics.
