Biography

Dr. Yuri Alexeev is a Principal Project Specialist at the Argonne National Laboratory and a Senior Scientist in Department of Computer Science at University of Chicago Consortium for Advanced Science and Engineering. He is a senior member of IEEE society and a member of Chicago Quantum Exchange. His research involves development of quantum computing algorithms, error correction/mitigation techniques, and numerical simulator of quantum systems using high-performance computing on next-generation high-performance supercomputers. The recent projects include development of quantum chemistry and combinatorial optimization quantum algorithms for NISQ quantum computers.

Dr. Alexeev received his PhD in Physical Chemistry from Iowa State University while a graduate student in Mark Gordon’s quantum chemistry group. After graduation, Dr. Alexeev became a postdoctoral fellow at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and worked in the NWChem group led by Dr. Theresa Windus; later, he joined the Nobel Prize winner Dr. Martin Karplus’ group at Harvard University and Université de Strasbourg.
