Ilya built quantum computers at Stanford and Caltech, spent some time making the world's most efficient solar cell, and took a turn in venture capital, but he always knew cloud storage and sync were the obvious next step. Now he's working on getting more people into Dropbox and more Dropbox into people's lives.
Ilya holds a PhD in Applied Physics and M.S. in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University, where he focused on quantum computing and semiconductor physics, as well as a few internet ventures of marginal success. Ilya received his B.S. in Physics at Caltech, where he worked on single-molecule biophysics, microfluidics, computational fluid dynamics and numerical simulation methods.In his free time, he tries to keep up with languages (Russian, German and Hebrew), skiing, food & wine, and web and mobile app development.
