Quantum Tech Pod Episode 62: Kristin Gilkes, EY Global Quantum Leader
Kristin has a Ph.D. in Decision Sciences and a graduate diploma in artificial intelligence from the University of Oxford. She also has an MBA from the University of Colorado and a BBA in computer science from Texas A&M University.
She and her team at EY have built a quantum center of excellence to help governments and institutions worldwide design their quantum strategy without having to build their quantum ecosystem.
While EY partners with big tech, small tech, academia, and public sector organizations to formulate the best-in-class access to both quantum computing and quantum sensing, their major quantum alliance is with IBM. In fact, Kristen spoke earlier this week at the IBM Quantum Summit in NYC.
She also runs the Financial Services Women in Technology Group. Her advice to women interested in getting involved in quantum?
“Lean in and accelerate! Women are more empowered to drive their careers than sometimes they think.”
