### Hello 👋

I'm a [computational quantum physicist]( and
[software developer](, working to build accessible, open-source quantum
software at [Xanadu](

### At a glance 👀

* I am a lead developer of [PennyLane](, a library for differentiable
  programming of quantum computers.
* I sit on the advisory board of the [Unitary Fund](, a non-profit working to create
  an accessible quantum technology ecosystem.
* I hold a PhD in quantum computation from the [University of Western
* I sometimes moonlight as an illustrator.
