SHOHINI GHOSE, WILFRID LAURIER UNIVERSITY

In her March 4 public lecture at Perimeter Institute, Ghose will guide the audience through the latest advances in the quantum world and share her own journey in quantum science. Ghose, a professor of physics and computer science at Wilfrid Laurier University, studies how the laws of quantum physics can be exploited to transform computing and communications, and to achieve feats such as teleportation.

Ghose is a leading expert, and sought-after speaker, in quantum information science, as well as how to make the global science community more vibrant and inclusive. She is the founding director of the Laurier Centre for Women in Science and President of the Canadian Association of Physicists, and she served as Perimeter Institute’s first Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Specialist.

Among her many honours, Ghose is a TED Senior Fellow and member of the Royal Society of Canada’s College of New Scholars, Artists, and Scientists. In 2019, she was among 25 leading women scientists from around the world featured in a UNESCO exhibit in Paris.
