Alongside developing strategies for encoding information within quantum computers, Nic has also worked extensively in the foundations of quantum mechanics. His time grappling with the fundamental meaning of quantum physics has uniquely equipped him to convey (and sometimes judiciously avoid) it’s finer details. He also has 10+ years experience working in science communication, having developed numerous public lectures, workshops and educational resources aimed at conveying complex physics topics to a general audience. Along with work in other media (eg: television, radio), his public engagement work has won various awards (eg: NESTA UK Famelab winner) and been recognized by a visit to 10 downing street. He also has a lifelong passion for more conventional computing and machine learning.
