Joanna M Zajac is a scientist specialising in condensed matter physics and quantum technologies. She worked on III-V semiconductrs where she studied exciton-polariton quantum fluids and their applciaitons to optoelectronics and fundamental science during her PhD. Afterwards, Joanna worked on quantum dot single photon emitters for applications in Quantum Technologies during her Postdoc appointment. More recently, she contributed to the development of quantum memories based on defect centres in diamond during her work at Oxford University. Joanna also spent 3 years working in industry.

Joanna joined Brookhaven National Laboratory in 2022 as a Staff Scientist. She was recently awarded Department of Energy Early Career Award for her research on interfaces between flying and stationary qubits and their applicaitons for Quantum Netowrks.
