From Blog Sicilia (Italy), December 15, 2021: From Marsala to Chicago, a young Sicilian among the most important scientists in the world. Fermilab’s Anna Grassellino is a researcher from Marsala chosen by the DOE to lead a project that will build the quantum computer: a revolutionary machine that will lead to a new era of research. In Chicago, she is among the most important scientists in the world.

From Forbes, October 11, 2021: Fermilab is part of the Chicago Quantum Exchange (CQE), an intellectual hub to promote the research of quantum information technologies and the development of new commercial uses of it. While quantum computing is still in its infancy, the technology is gaining momentum around the world as governments, academic researchers, security innovators and business leaders are coalescing around the potential quantum has to fundamentally change data communication and security.

From We the Italians, October 6, 2021: From Marsala, Sicily to Chicago, Illinois, Fermilab’s Anna Grassellino is a successful scientist, mother and Southern Italian woman who loves the Italy that raised her and the United States that welcomed her.

From La Repubblica (Italy), September 30, 2021: Fermilab has recently started the development of a quantum computer with performances that go well beyond those of currently existing quantum computers. This project is being lead by Fermilab’s Anna Grassellino, who also graduated in Electronic Engineering from the University of Pisa.

Over time, particle physics and astrophysics and computing have built upon one another’s successes. That coevolution continues today. New physics experiments require computing innovation, including cluster computing for the Tevatron, and more recently machine learning and quantum problem-solving.

From Discover Magazine, September 15, 2021: The the Quantum Economic Development Consortium (QED-C) developed a survey in 2020 to gather information from QED-C member companies about their workforce needs. FermiLab research associate Ciaran Hughes and colleagues surveyed 57 companies involved in the incipient quantum industry to find out what kinds of skills they are looking for and those that are most in demand. This is the largest survey undertaken of the quantum industry and the results offer some surprises.

From Forbes Italia, July 27, 2021: Congratulations Anna Grasselino on being named by Forbes Italia as one of the 100 successful women who has distinguished herself in 2021 for ingenuity, tenacity and competence! See the complete list that includes scientists, sport champions, visionary entrepreneurs and managers.

From Chicago Star Media, May 28, 2021: Fermilab’s Anna Grasselino talks with Chicago Star Media about the solutions quantum computers will bring to weather forecasting, traffic studies, financial modeling, and more.
