Prof. Dr. Kristel Michielsen

In 1993, Prof. Dr. K. Michielsen received her Ph.D. degree from the University of Groningen (Netherlands), for work on the simulation of strongly correlated electron systems. Since 2009 she is the group leader of the research group Quantum Information Processing (QIP) at the Jülich Supercomputing Centre, Forschungszentrum Jülich and is also Professor QIP at RWTH Aachen University.



Adiabatic quantum computation

Her current research interests include adiabatic quantum computation and the operation of the D-Wave Two quantum computer, quantum statistical physics, computational electrodynamics, discrete-event simulation of and the application of logical inference to quantum phenomena.
