I’m a computational quantum physicist and software developer, working to build accessible, open-source quantum software at Xanadu, a Toronto-based quantum photonic hardware company.

At a glance:

  • I am a lead developer of PennyLane, a library for differentiable programming of quantum computers.

  • I sit on the advisory board of the Unitary Fund, a non-profit working to create an accessible quantum technology ecosystem.

  • I hold a PhD in quantum computation from the University of Western Australia, with a focus on quantum graph algorithms and numerical simulation.

  • My current research interests include quantum machine learning and variational quantum algorithms.

  • I also enjoy science writing and communication, and have written an undergraduate textbook on computational quantum mechanics.
