Stacey Jeffery


In 2014, Stacey Jeffery received her doctorate in Computer Science from the University of Waterloo, under the supervision of Prof. Michele Mosca, and informal co-supervision of Prof. Frédéric Magniez. She was an IQIM Postdoctoral Scholar at Caltech until December 2016. Since January 2017, she has been a Senior Researcher at CWI, where she holds an NWO WISE Fellowship, and a Veni Grant. Stacey’s research interests are in quantum cryptography and quantum algorithms. She is interested in secure delegation of quantum computation, frameworks for facilitating the design of quantum algorithms, and models of quantum computation.
