Qedma’s team is considered outstanding world-wide. Both CSO Prof Dorit Aharonov, and CTO Prof Netanel Lindner, who are also co-founders, stand as internationally renowned figures in their respective fields, with tens of years of expertise in all relevant areas of Q computation, and a stance of world leaders in Q computation and in the physics of Q many systems, respectively.

Furthermore, Qedma boasts an extraordinary team of personnel. Our research and application teams comprise not only the foremost Q computing researchers in Israel but also global leaders. Collaborating closely with these teams is the development team, which includes uniquely skilled programmers with a strong background in Israel’s premier technology firms and a history of service within the top technology units of the Israel Defense Forces. Notably, all team members hold degrees in physics and computer science from Israel’s finest universities.


At Qedma, we believe that gender balance is extremely important. Qedma has particularly emphasized this aspect in leadership roles, with 50% women representation in its top management. Qedma intends to soon improve its gender balance across all levels of positions. Achieving gender balance is not only a matter of equality but also a strategic imperative for Qedma. Ensuring it will enhance our ability to adapt and innovate by bringing diverse perspectives and experiences to the forefront.

Asif Sinay

Chief Executive Officer and Co-founder

Asif holds a PhD in complex systems and Q Physics from the Weizmann Institute of Science, under the supervision of Prof. Nir Davidson, and an M.Sc. in Physics from the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology. He led a multidisciplinary team as a Research Physicist at Magic Leap, developing innovative sensors and imaging technologies, and was a physics research lead at Rafael Ltd., developing chip-scale atomic clocks. Asif participated in the elite Israel Defense Force’s “Talpiot” program, designed for gifted individuals, and aimed at research and development, which contributed to his unique combination of academic, research, management and entrepreneurial expertise.


Dorit Aharonov

Chief Scientific Officer and Co-founder

Aharonov is the CSO of Qedma and a computer science Professor at the Hebrew University. In her PhD she proved the quantum fault tolerance theorem, one of the main pillars of quantum computation today. Aharonov has pioneering contributions in a wide range of areas of quantum computation including quantum algorithms, quantum walks, adiabatic computation, Hamiltonian complexity, quantum cryptography and quantum verification. After completing her PhD in Computer Science and Physics at the Hebrew university, during which she received several awards including Clore and Wolf prizes, Aharonov continued to a postdoc at the institute for advanced studies (IAS) Princeton Math and at UC Berkeley Computer Science. In 2005 she was featured by Nature as one of four theoreticians making waves in their chosen field; She received the Krill prize in 2006, was awarded a 1.5M Euro ERC starting grant in 2012, and in 2014 she received the prestigious Michael Bruno. In parallel to her main role at Qedma, she continues to lead an active research group at the Hebrew university.

Netanel Lindner

Chief Technology Officer and Co-founder

Netanel is a professor of theoretical physics at the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology. He received his B.A., MSc. and Ph.D. from the Technion, where he received several prizes and fellowships, including the Wolf and Clore Foundation Awards, and the Israel Physical Society Prize for graduate students. In 2009, he started a postdoctoral scholar position at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech). In 2013, Netanel joined the Physics Department at the Technion. Since joining the Technion, he was awarded the Yigal Alon Fellowship and the Krill Prize given by the Wolf foundation and received several prestigious grants including the ERC Starter Grant and the DIP German-Israeli Project Cooperation Grant. Netanel has made pioneering contributions in a wide range of fields, including photonic and topological quantum computing and non-equilibrium topological quantum matter.
