I work in the User Engagement team in the Quantum Computing and Simulation Hub, a collaboration between 17 UK universities and one of four hubs within the UK National Quantum Technologies Programme.
Working with an extensive network of academic, industrial and governmental partners, we are focused on the critical research challenges for quantum computing, across a broad range of hardware and software disciplines.
As well as addressing the technical challenges in providing quantum computing and simulation at scale, the Hub engages with industries, end users, government and citizens to ensure the UK is 'quantum ready'. Our aim is to accelerate progress within quantum computing and ensure the UK becomes, and remains, a leader in the emerging global quantum information economy.
I have over 25 years' experience in industry, and was most recently a Sales Director in Capgemini Engineering, where I focussed on data science in industrial R&D applications.
I hold a PhD in Particle Physics from the University of Birmingham, based on research I carried out at CERN.
