Before joining the University of Ottawa in 2022, Dr. Stefanie Czischek was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Waterloo, working with Dr. Roger Melko. Her research interest focuses on the intersection of artificial neural networks and quantum technologies with a specific focus on realizations of neural networks on biologically inspired neuromorphic devices or general physical systems. During her Ph.D. at Heidelberg University (Germany) in the group of Dr. Thomas Gasenzer, Dr. Czischek performed pioneering works leading the path toward a representation of strongly entangled quantum states on the BrainScaleS spiking neuromorphic hardware. In 2020, Dr. Czischek received the Springer Thesis Award, which recognizes outstanding Ph.D. research.
