My name's Padraic, and I'm a Physics PhD student at the UCL Centre for Doctoral Training in Delivering Quantum Technologies. I'm working with Prof. Dan Browne on the problem of classically simulating quantum circuits, and what that can tell us about their capabilities. I'm also interested in the future of programming quantum devices, and questions of how we get the most from early devices.

Outside of physics, I'm otherwise a dork; I somehow keep up with technology without really meaning too, and I usually have headphones on my person for music or podcasts. I'll be more than happy to talk for far too long about either.

Back when I was at Imperial College I did some writing and editing for Felix, and some radio shows/IT managing for IC Radio. I'd hoped to do the same here at UCL, but so far it's been hard to find the time!
