Elvira Shishenina joined the BMW Group’s Quantum Computing (QC) initiative as a resident expert in January 2021. An École Polytechnique (Institut Polytechnique de Paris) Engineer, she has an Applied Mathematics and Computational Physics background with Master degrees from École Polytechnique and Novosibirsk State University. In 2018 she acquired a PhD degree in Mathematics from the French National Institute for Research in Digital Science and Technology (Inria). In 2019, following the transition to Quantum Computing, she helped grow the project at TotalEnergies taking charge of QC-applications in Quantum Chemistry and Linear Algebra. While developing Total Energies’ first in-house QC codes targeting the company’s problematics, she also supervised multiple industrial and academic collaborations. In 2020 with her peers from École Polytechnique, she founded QuantX - the alumni association devoted to QC technology. Besides popularizing Quantum Computing, QuantX facilitates the transfer of expertise from the academic and startup environment to mature industries. Today Elvira Shishenina leads Quantum Computing research and applications in BMW Group, exploring the promissing use cases across the automotive industry and the Group’s activities.
