Maxim Vavilov is a member of SEEQC’s scientific advisory board. Vavilov developed theoretical models of quantum electronic systems out of equilibrium, investigated transport in disordered metals and small superconducting devices. He also studied localization and interaction effects in many-body systems.

Vavilov’s current research focuses on designing scalable techniques of control and measurement in superconducting quantum systems. He was a scientific advisor to five graduate students who successfully graduated with Ph.D. degrees and found positions in academia or industry.

Vavilov received a CAREER award from the National Science Foundation in 2010, Google Faculty Research Awards in 2019 and 2020. He is a fellow of the American Physical Society. Maxim received an M.S. degree from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology and a Ph.D. degree from Cornell University. He was a postdoc at the University of Minnesota, MIT, and Yale University before joining the University of Wisconsin - Madison as a faculty member in 2006.
