Stacey Jeffery appointed professor of Quantum Information at UvA

QuSoft researcher Stacey Jeffery has been appointed professor of Quantum Information at the Faculty of Science of the University of Amsterdam (UvA).

Stacey Jeffery’s previous research has delved into various facets of quantum computing and theoretical computer science. Notably, she has made significant contributions to quantum walk algorithms and other techniques for designing quantum algorithms. Her research has shed light on the power and limitations of quantum computing, paving the way for further advancements in the field and enriching our understanding of quantum information processing and its implications for computational tasks.

As a professor at the UvA, Jeffery will continue her research in quantum algorithms, working closely with colleagues at the KdVI, particularly within the discrete math and quantum information research unit.

Jeffery will teach a Masters course in advanced quantum algorithms in the new Quantum Masters.

Professor Jeffery got her PhD from the University of Waterloo’s Institute for Quantum Computing, in Canada, before doing a postdoctoral fellowship at the institute for Quantum Information and Matter at Caltech. Since 2017, she has been a Senior Researcher at CWI, where she has held a Veni Grant and currently holds an ERC starting grant.  Last year she won the first Quantum Delta NL awarded, along with Julia Cramer, for their work in confounding WIQD (, a network for women working in quantum computing in the Netherlands.
