Raymond Laflamme was born in Quebec City and did his undergraduate studies in Physics at Universite Laval. He then moved to Cambridge, England, where he survived Part III of Mathematical Tripos before earning his PhD in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP) under the direction of Stephen Hawking. Laflamme and Don Page are responsible for having changed Hawking's mind on the direction of time in a contracting Universe (as described in Hawking’s best-seller "A Brief History of Time").
Michal Bajcsy is an Associate Professor at the Institute for Quantum Computing and the Electrical and Engineering department, where he joined as assistant professor in 2014.
Bajcsy received both his PhD in Applied Physics and his Bachelor of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Harvard University’s School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.
Jonathan Baugh is working toward the physical realization of quantum information processors in solid-state systems, using the property of spin to encode and manipulate quantum information.

Professor Miao has been an assistant professor at the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) and the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Waterloo since September, 2012. He first joined IQC in May of 2011 as a Research Assistant Professor.
Prior to joining IQC, he received his PhD from Brown University in 2006, and then went on to roles as a postdoctoral associate and research scientist at the Francis Bitter Magnet Laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Michele Mosca obtained a BMath at Waterloo in 1995 and was recipient of the Mathematics Faculty Alumni Gold Medal. He went to Wolfson College, University of Oxford, on a Commonwealth Scholarship, and received an MSc in Mathematics and the Foundations of Computer Science (with Distinction) in 1996. He continued at Oxford, obtaining a DPhil in quantum computer algorithms in 1999 while holding the Robin Gandy Junior Research Fellowship.
Ashwin Nayak is a professor in the Department of Combinatorics and Optimization. He studied theoretical computer science at Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur (BTech, 1995) and at University of California, Berkeley (PhD, 1999).
