Michał Stęchły


My name is Michał, I’m from Poland and I currently live in Canada. I have a wife and two daughters (born in 2013 and 2017).

I’m interested in many different topics, ranging from moviemaking to quantum computing.


I’m a software engineer & researcher working on quantum computing algorithms. I’m interested in optimization, machine learning, data visualization and research process (among others). I work at Zapata Computing as Quantum Software Engineer.

I am also an active member of QC community and created several open source projects (see projects).


I treat this blog as a platform to write about the topics that I find worth writing about :) Right now I focus on quantum computing, but you can expect occasional articles on other topics.

The name comes from the fact that my last name “Stęchły” translates to “Musty” in English.


One of our mottos at Estimote was “We need feedback to grow”. I agree with that in 100%, so if there is any feedback you would like to pass to me, don’t hesitate to write me an e-mail at michal.stechly@gmail.com .
