Andrew Bestwick is the Director of Quantum Architecture at Rigetti Computing. He and his team develop the technology roadmap and design of Rigetti's scalable, high-performance superconducting qubit processors. Earlier at Rigetti he started the chip fabrication team, which built the world's first dedicated superconducting quantum processor foundry. Previously, he received a physics PhD from Stanford University, where his thesis work on electron transport in topological materials confirmed precise conductance quantization in the quantum anomalous Hall effect, and worked as a management consultant at Bain & Company.
