JILA graduate student and Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) researcher Enrique Segura Carrillo has been highlighted in the July/August issue of the American Physical Society's (APS Physics) newsletter. Segura Carrillo, whose research focuses on quantum science, is part of the APS’s Industry Mentoring Program (IMPact), which began in 2015. Through this program, Segura Carillo connected with John Teufel, a group leader at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Through this connection, Teufel helped Segura Carillo apply for his Ph.D. in physics at the University of Colorado Boulder.
“John took the time to guide me through the process,” Segura Carrillo said in the newsletter. “Once I arrived at CU-Boulder, he ensured we met at least twice a semester. For my qualifying exam, he helped me build a great technical talk.”
Segura Carillo plans to graduate with his Ph.D. in 2026 after pursuing several research projects with JILA and LANL. He hopes to continue his industry physics career after graduation, as he enjoyed previous experiences, like an internship at the Aerospace Corporation in industrial science.
