About

Vilhelm (Billy) is an aspiring professional scientist who will pursue training in quantum theory at Stanford, as well as hands-on experimental skills for building devices that control and extract quantum information. Billy has been admitted to the physics program and comes with a BS from MIT in physics, electrical engineering, and computer science (2020). His outstanding academic and athletic record gained him recognition as a MIT SHASS Burchard Scholar (2018) and Google Cloud Academic All-American (2019), an award that honors top student-athletes. Most recently, he was awarded a Rhodes Scholarship (2020), which he will complete before beginning his PhD program in 2022. While at Oxford, Billy will study philosophy, politics, and economics so he is better equipped to advise legislative bodies on science and technology, particularly quantum computing.
