Adam Szady

  • Software Engineer
Adam Szady

Adam joined BEIT during the fourth year of his studies. Always keen on learning, willing to dive deep into quantum computing, questioning more traditional approach to problem solving, added creativity to our team. He has already managed to work for Sabre as software engineer, got to Google Distributed Code Jam finals and spend 3 months as Google intern in Munich.

Marcin Briański

  • Mathematician
Marcin Briański

Marcin has joined BEIT in the summer of 2018, initially just for the summer internship but decided to continue working with us. He is currently enrolled in a PhD programme in Theoretical Computer Science at the Jagiellonian University. His tasks at BEIT range from implementing our algorithms to proving they can't work (any better). His interests focus around combinatorics, in particular structural graph theory and optimisation.

Jan Tułowiecki

  • Software Engineer
Jan Tułowiecki

Jan is a competitive programming spirit. He loves analysing problems in depth and solving algorithmic challenges. In 2019 he obtained his master's degree in Computer Science on University of Science and Technology in Kraków. He represented his university on various coding competitions, both national and Europe–wide. Jan joined BEIT already having work experience in software engineering gained at Samsung R&D in Kraków.

Jan Gwinner

  • Mathematician
Jan Gwinner

Jan joined our team at the beginning of 2019 while doing his Master's degree in Computer Science. His main focus lies in combining mathematical knowledge with quantum algorithms. He previously had internship in Mountain View at Google.

Szymon Pliś

  • General Engineer
  • PhD in Mathematics
    Jagiellonian University
Szymon Pliś

Szymon is an expert in complex analysis and nonlinear PDEs. Recently he worked as an assistant professor at the Jagiellonian University. Earlier he was doing his research in the Cracow University of Technology and in the Polish Academy of Science.

Jacek Horecki

  • Mathematician
Jacek Horecki

Jacek joined our team after acquiring experience at Samsung R&D Cracow. He is a student at Jagiellonian University, doing both Math and Computer Science courses. He is a passionate Python and C++ developer, interested in data visualization and analysis.

Bruno Pitrus

  • Mathematician
Bruno Pitrus

Bruno has C++ programming experience, having previously interned at Techmo working on a natural language grammar parser. He studied computer science and mathematics at Jagiellonian University. His interests range from category theory and algebraic topology to computational complexity, and he believes that abstract algebra is the best approach for solving mathematical problems.

Konrad Deka

  • Mathematician
Konrad Deka

Konrad joined BEIT in 2021. He is currently pursuing his PhD in Mathematics at the Jagiellonian University in the area of dynamical systems and ergodic theory. He is also a C++ and Python programmer who deals with a variety of mathematics-related tasks.

Emil Żak

  • Physicist
  • PhD in theoretical molecular and optical physics
    University College London
Emil Żak

Emil got his PhD in theoretical molecular and optical physics at University College London, UK. Later he stayed as a post-doctoral fellow at Queen's University (Ontario, Canada) and more recently he was a research associate at the Deutsches Elektronen-Synchtrotron DESY in Hamburg, Germany. His research has been focused on designing new computational methods for the quantum dynamics of molecules. Now with BEIT he is developing algorithms for simulating quantum systems with analog and digital quantum computers.
