Richard Cleve received his PhD from the University of Toronto in 1989, specializing in computational complexity and cryptography. He was a postdoctoral fellow at Berkeley's International Computer Science Institute from 1988 to 1990, after which he became a faculty member in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Calgary. In 1994 he became interested in quantum information processing, and since that time he has made several contributions to quantum algorithms and information theory. In particular, he played a major role in the development of quantum communication complexity. Since August 2004, he is a Professor in the School of Computer Science at the University of Waterloo, where he holds the IQC Chair in Quantum Computing.
