Christopher Ferrie

Senior Lecturer, UTS Chancellor's Postdoctoral Research and ARC DECRA Fellow, University of Technology Sydney

I am Chris Ferrie, father of four and happy husband. My day job is academic research where I follow my curiosity through the word of quantum physics. My passion for communicating science has led from the most esoteric topics of mathematical physics to more recently writing children’s books.

During the day you will find me as a senior lecturer at the University of Technology Sydney and Centre for Quantum Software and Information. My research interests include quantum estimation and control, and, in particular, the use of machine learning to solve statistical problems in quantum information science. I obtained my PhD in Applied Mathematics from Institute for Quantum Computing and University of Waterloo (Canada) in 2012.
