Yasunobu Nakamura studied physical properties of high-temperature superconductors for his MSc in The University of Tokyo in 1992. He joined Fundamental Research Laboratories of NEC Corporation in 1992 and worked on mesoscopic electronic devices. In 1999 he demonstrated the first coherent control of a superconducting qubit. He received D. Eng. from The University of Tokyo in 2011. He moved to the current position in Research Center for Advanced Science and Technology (RCAST), The University of Tokyo, in 2012. He has also been the leader of Superconducting Quantum Electronics Team in RIKEN Center for Emergent Matter Science since 2014. He received Sir Martin Wood Prize and Nishina Memorial Prize in 1999, Agilent Technologies Europhysics Prize in 2004, Simon Memorial Prize in 2008, Leo Esaki Prize in 2014, Japan Society of Applied Physics Outstanding Achievement Award in 2019, and Asahi Prize in 2020. He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society.
