(IQTEvent) Catherine McGeoch, D-Wave, Senior Scientist, has agreed to present “Whither Quantum Annealers?” at the upcoming Inside Quantum Computing Online June 2. Catherine McGeoch received her doctorate in Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon University in 1987 and taught at Amherst College for 30 years. In 2014 she traded academia for industry and joined the technical staff of D-Wave Systems. Her research focus is on empirical analysis of algorithms and heuristics, and more recently on performance evaluation of quantum algorithms and computing systems. She was co-founder of the DIMACS Implementation Challenges and the ALENEX conferences on algorithm engineering and experimentation; and she is past editor in chief of the ACM Journal on Experimental Algorithmics. She has authored two books, one on guidelines for experimental analysis of algorithms, and one on adiabatic quantum computation and quantum annealing.
