Coordinatrice de Quantum Engineering Grenoble
Alexia Auffèves is a CNRS senior scientist at Institut Néel, Grenoble. She did her PhD in the group of S. Haroche, where she fabricated Schrödinger cat states of light. She was hired at CNRS in 2005 to realize quantum optics experiments with semiconducting quantum dots. She then took a theoretical turn. She is expert in quantum thermodynamics, quantum information and quantum foundations, and works closely with experimentalists and theorists worldwide. She heads Quantum Engineering Grenoble since 2017.
