Olivia Di Matteo QSAR group
About Research News People Positions


The QSAR (Quantum Software and Algorithms Research) group was established in 2022 in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at UBC.

This page is currently under construction; in the future it will contain more details about on-going research projects, group members, and open positions.


For prospective graduate students

I am seeking two new PhD students, starting either May 2023 or September 2023, for research projects in the following areas:

Please contact me directly via e-mail (olivia at ece.ubc.ca) with a copy of your CV, and a link to any relevant software-related online profiles (e.g., GitHub). You must be a proficient programmer, but you do not need to know any quantum computing! Students coming from domain-specific science backgrounds (e.g., physics, chemistry, biology), as well as those from groups who have been traditionally under-represented in the sciences, are especially encouraged to reach out.

For UBC undergraduate students

I am open to supervising undergraduate students. If you know how to program and are interested in exploring quantum computing for a co-op term, summer research project, honours thesis, or a directed studies course, please get in touch with your CV, link to a GitHub profile if you have one, and details about what topics you are most interested in.
