Fireside Chat with Thomas McConkey

Join us for casual conversations with quantum researchers.

What makes a superconducting qubit tick? How does experience in a research lab prepare you for working on major projects after graduation?

We’ll talk about these topics and more with IQC alumnus Thomas McConkey, now a Microwave Design Engineer at IBM Q, at the next virtual fireside chat.

Tune in live on YouTube.

Join the Waterloo Centre for Astrophysics for a public lecture (offered in-person and online) as Dr. Katie Mack explores "Physics at the End of the Universe": The Big Bang theory tells the story of the beginning of the Universe, our cosmic home for the last 13.8 billion years. But how does the story end? I’ll share what modern astrophysics tells us about the ultimate fate of the cosmos, and what the catastrophic destruction of all reality would look like to anyone still around to see it.
