Dimitrios Angelakis

Chief Scientist and Founder (AngelQ Quantum Computing), Principal Investigator, CQT (Centre for Quantum Technologies, Singapore).

AngelQ Quantum Computing is a quantum software and consulting company based in Singapore. AngelQ builds architecture-agnostic quantum and quantum inspired software solutions ready for company deployment. Example industries it works with are market and consumer research, finance, energy and sustainability, and supply chain.

Angelakis completed his PhD in quantum physics at Imperial College in 2002 and his thesis received the UK Institute of Physics Quantum Electronics Thesis Prize that year. Since then, he has been leading quantum computing research teams in Cambridge, Greece and Singapore. His research awards include the 2018 Google Quantum Innovation Award and the Valerie Myerscough Award from University of London.

Dimitris G. Angelakis joined CQT in 2009 as a Principal Investigator after being a regular visitor and collaborator of the quantum group since 2003. He was born and raised in a small farm in Chania, Crete, Greece, where his childhood curiosity for the wonders of nature led him to study physics in the University of Crete in Heraklion. In 1998 he was offered a PhD position in quantum optics to work with Sir Peter Knight FRS at Imperial College London supported by the Greek State Scholarship Foundation.

His PhD work in quantum light-matter interactions received the Valerie Myerscough prize in 2000, and also the Institute of Physics UK prize in 2002. In 2001 and at age 25 he was elected college research Fellow at University of Cambridge (St Catharine’s JRF) and worked in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics until 2007.
