Event details

Brian moved to Edinburgh from Ireland in 2016 for the MSc programme offered by the Higgs centre in Theoretical Physics.
Afterwards, he remained in Edinburgh (but moved to the Informatics forum) for a joint MRes/PhD programme in the CDT for Pervasive Parallelism, supervised by Prof. Elham Kashefi. Here, he worked on finding applications for the near-term quantum computers we have available today and he also worked at two quantum computing startups in the UK during that time. Brian is currently a Postdoc at University College London, still searching for quantum computing applications, but using the toolkit of tensor networks.
