PROFESSOR MICHELLE SIMMONS
Sunday 3 June 2018 commencing at 2.30pm for 3pm
We are thrilled to be welcoming Professor Simmons to Wombat Hollow. This is a rare privilege for our Southern Highlands Community. With Michelle’s extensive workload, Australia Day Council commitments and mothering her three children, we feel extremely honoured she has agreed to devote the time to visit with us.
Professor Michelle Simmons was named the 2018 Australian of the Year in recognition of her pioneering research and inspiring leadership in quantum computing. Michelle is a UNSW Professor of Physics and Director of the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence in Quantum Computation and Communication Technology.
Michelle leads a team of more than 200 researchers at 8 Australian universities who are developing a suite of technologies for quantum computing, information storage and communications. Her team is leading the world in the race to develop a quantum computer in silicon.
If you, like me, have no idea what any of the above means, Michelle is incredibly good at explaining it all in laymen terms.
Please join us for what will be an enlightening, inspiring and thought provoking event.
Please book early as Wombat Hollow Forum events are fully subscribed very quickly.
