Brett Henderson

Quantum Researcher
University of Victoria

I am a PhD student in computational chemistry at the University of Victoria, studying materials for energy storage and delivery. At QAI, I am investigating how hybrid quantum-classical algorithms can be used to study the catalysts used in hydrogen fuel cells for increased accuracy and efficiency relative to purely classical approaches.

Riley Nerem

Quantum Researcher
University of Calgary

I am a Master’s student studying quantum algorithms at the University of Calgary’s Institute for Quantum Science and Technology. My latest research is divided between understanding the implications of quantum algorithms to other fields (e.g. biology, cryptocurrency) and computational complexity questions related to quantum spectral transformations. My focus at QAI is on evaluating the applicability of quantum search algorithms to computational problems arising in industry.

Calls for Proposals

Below is a list of all current open calls for proposals offered by QAI.

Launch Date Deadline Description Full Detail
Mitacs

Quantum Algorithm Institute (QAI) and Mitacs invites college, undergraduate and graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows (all disciplines) from a QAI post-secondary institution to participate in the 2021 QAI-Mitacs internships competition. The internship will provide up to $40,000, eight months from approval, to fund quantum computing research in areas such as clean tech, transportation and logistics, emergency management, healthcare and quantum chemistry, or the design of new algorithms.
