ABOUT UBCQ

We are in the process of planning activities for this Fall. Those will include workshops, seminars, industry nights, and an original event created by the executive team. 

Our 4 Pillars

MEET THE TEAM

Lily Watt

PRESIDENT

Hello! I’m Lily, the president of UBCQ for the 2023-24 year. I’m a third year Engineering Physics student at UBC, and some of my professional interests are in quantum computing, machine learning for robotics applications, and accessible education. I’ve been with the club since its inception in 2021, and I’m super excited to implement our vision for this upcoming year.

SHReYa Gupta

Co-VP ACADEMIC

Hey! I’m Shreya, I’m a 2nd year physics student. I’m not sure how short this bio should be so I’ll leave it there, but I’m super talkative otherwise so feel free to chat with me about anything interesting (no pressure – anything can be interesting if you choose the right reference frame)!

Shahzad Shams

Co-VP ACADEMIC

Hey! My name is Shahzad and I am a second year biomedical engineering student and am one half of the academic team for UBC Quantum Club. I’m interested in the intersection between biomedical applications and quantum computing, particularly with how it can help improve the field of surgical robotics. I’m excited to be on the team and to meeting all of our club members!

Muneeba Ashiq

VP TECHNICAL

Hello! I am Muneeba and am the VP Technical for UBCQ. As a third year Computer Science major, I channel my passion for quantum computing into bridging the gap between theory and application. I am extremely interested in others’ opinion on the technological revolution we are currently in and love to hear about it. So, feel free to talk with me if you see me at our various events. 

WILL Ko

VP INTERNAL

Hey! I’m Will and I am your VP Internal for the year 2023-2024! I am a second year in Mathematics in the Faculty of Science. If I am not reading web comics, bingeing sitcoms, or studying at the library, you will see me going on adventures around Vancouver whether it be hiking, trying new restaurants and cafes, or just hanging with friends. I also enjoy listening to music, singing, and playing video games. If you think you can beat me in Mario Kart or Just Dance, bring it on!

Sherwin Tiu

VP COMMUNITY

Hey! I’m a 3rd year electrical engineering student interested in technology, especially in quantum technologies, but also in various emerging technologies. I also heavily involve myself in activities within my engineering department, and enjoy travelling and reading when I’m free.

Pranay Aggarwal

VP MARKETING

Hi, I am a second year BSc Statistics and I have been the VP Marketing since my first year. Quantum computing is the future of computation and what better way to be part of this revolution than promoting it. A fun fact about me, I am a really curious person and I love to learn more about the most random stuff possible. Feel free to walk up to me and discuss the most random topic you can think of, you won’t be disappointed.

Shikha rajesh

AVP MARKETING

Hey! I am Shikha Rajesh, a second-year Science student and the current AVP Marketing for the UBC Quantum Club for the year 2023-24. I love fitness and coding! My favourite TV show of all time is Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Ask me anything about travelling 🙂

RIPAN GREWAL

Co-VP EVENTS and LOGISTICS

I am second year CMS student. I am very passionate about AI and Machine Learning. I love reading and going for long walks around campus.

Peter peng

Co-VP EXTERNAL

Hello! I’m Peter, third year physics and computer science student at UBC. My current professional interests are in the growing intersections between computer science and physics, particularly on the computational side. I’ve been hooked on quantum computing ever since I joined UBCQ in 2022, and I’m super excited to be contributing to the club this year as AVP External!

Odetta Li

Co-VP EXTERNAL

Tanay Mahendru
