Tameem obtained his Ph.D. in String Theory (AdS/CFT) from the University of Southern of California (USC) in 2010. He continued at USC as a postdoc, where he started working on quantum annealing and more generally adiabatic quantum computing. He is currently a Computer Scientist at the Information Sciences Institute, USC. **Room:** SSC 611 **Email:** A L B A S H A T U S C DOT EDU
