Prof. Alexia Auffèves did her PhD in the group of S. Haroche, where she fabricated Schrödinger cat states of light.

She was hired at CNRS in 2005 to realize quantum optics experiments with semiconducting quantum dots. She then took a theoretical turn.

Prof. Auffèves is expert in quantum thermodynamics, quantum information and quantum foundations, and works in close connection with experimentalists and theorists worldwide.

She heads the Quantum Energy Team at IQET.
