Katie Klymko

Biographical Sketch

Katie Klymko received her PhD in 2018 from UC Berkeley where she worked on the statistical mechanics of non-equilibrium systems using computational and analytical techniques. She was a postdoc at LBL from October of 2018 through September of 2021, working on a range of topics including fluctuating hydrodynamics/finite volume methods for modeling mesoscale systems and more recently quantum computing algorithms. Her work in quantum computing has focused on the development of efficient methods for eigenvalue calculations in molecular systems as well as quantum computing algorithms to explore thermodynamic properties. In October of 2021, she became a staff member at NERSC where she is working to integrate HPC and quantum computing.
