Christine Muschik, assistant professor at the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) and the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Waterloo, has been selected as a 2020-2022 CIFAR Azrieli Global Scholar.
The Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) is saddened by the loss of Tom Brzustowksi. He was a great supporter of the institute having served on our Advisory Board since 2006, including as chair from 2006-2014.
The Dean of Science Award honours Master’s students in the Faculty of Science who demonstrate outstanding performance. We sat down with the latest winner, IQC researcher Patrick Daley from the Department of Physics and Astronomy, to learn more about his award-winning research.
An experiment that began by testing the properties of quantum entanglement has led to the discovery of a new diagnostic tool that could help optometrists detect macular degeneration much earlier than was previously possible.
The Institute for Quantum Computing acknowledges that we are on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg, and Haudenosaunee peoples. The University of Waterloo is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land promised to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our actions toward reconciliation take place through our research, teaching, learning, and community events, with guidance from the University’s Indigenous Initiatives Office.
