Portrait of Krysta M. Svore

Krysta M. Svore

General Manager


I lead the Microsoft Quantum – Redmond (QuArC) group at Microsoft Research in Redmond, WA. I am passionate about quantum computation and determining how to solve some of the world’s most challenging problems by using a quantum computer. My research focuses on quantum algorithms and how to implement them, ranging from how to code them in a high-level programming language, to how to optimize the resources they require, to how to implement them in hardware. Our team works on designing a scalable, fault-tolerant software architecture for translating a high-level quantum program into a low-level, device-specific quantum implementation. We are thrilled to announce we are releasing in preview our quantum software stack by the end of the year. To gain access, sign up.

We also design algorithms and applications for quantum computers in areas such as quantum chemistry, materials science, machine learning, optimization, and more. We…
