Christine Muschik, Assistant Professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy and IQC researcher, has been named as an Emmy Noether Visiting Fellow at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics.
Muschik is launching an interdisciplinary research effort connecting the field of quantum technologies with high-energy physics to explore quantum simulations of lattice gauge theories. Her aim is to develop new tools for basic science, including a new type of quantum simulator, and to provide applications for near-term quantum devices.
The fellowship supports early- and mid-career women physicists, and honours the legacy of scientist Emmy Noether who was described by Albert Einstein as “the most important woman in the history of mathematics.”
