Sergui Ulloa's Job:
Ulloa is a physics professor at Ohio University in Athens,  Ohio. Some of his work has involved the use of 'quantum dots'. Quantum dots are man-made objects that were designed to study how electrons function. These dots have many of the qualities that electrons do,  but are larger,  and thus easier to study. Quantum dots,  much like electrons,  have a spin. Ulloa and his team is working on figuring out how,  if it is possible,  to change the direction of this spin. If successful,  that knowledge could be used to create quantum computers in the future.
