Alexandre Choquette-Poitevin


Alexandre completed his studies in physics at the Université de Sherbrooke, during which he worked for IBM Quantum in Zürich. His expertise allows him to approach problems of practical importance using new methods that exploit the capabilities of today’s quantum computers. Alexandre believes that a real quantum advantage in the near term will be propelled by algorithmic development guided by a detailed understanding of how physical quantum processors work.

Outside of science, Alexandre is very interested in entrepreneurship, in both a personal and business capacity. In his spare time, he likes to be out in nature. Whether it is backcountry skiing, mountaineering, or canoeing, you can always count on Alexandre’s readiness to go on an adventure.
