Dr. Stefanie Czischek received her Ph.D. at Heidelberg University (Germany) in 2019. During this time she worked in the group of Dr. Thomas Gasenzer on simulations of quantum spin systems in and out of equilibrium using artificial neural networks. She further focussed on implementing such quantum state representations on spiking neuromorphic chips. In 2020, Dr. Czischek joined the University of Waterloo as a postdoctoral fellow in the group of Dr. Roger Melko, where she continues to investigate numerical simulation methods of quantum systems and applications of artificial neural networks for quantum technologies. In 2022 she will join the University of Ottawa as an assistant professor and start to grow a research group in her field of expertise.
