In four words
Physicist, writer, cartoonist, runner.
Starting my PhD in physics at the Université de Sherbrooke, writing about physics on my blog, and making comics about science with Handwaving. My goal is to illuminate the various aspects of physics with my writing/cartooning, including being part of academia.
Quantum computing, error correction, and machine learning in quantum many-body physics. During my undergraduate degree, I studied modified gravity, but I decided to move into the field of quantum computing and machine learning because I wanted to learn more about computational methods in physics. For my PhD, quantum computing and information will be my focus.
