Quantum Physicist, TEDX Speaker, and Science Superstar!
Dr Shohini Ghose is an amazing woman who works in the fields of Physics and Computer Science. Her achievements include being an Associate Professor at Wilfrid Laurier University in Canada and a TED Fellow. We recently caught up with her when she was in town to give a TED-X talk.
Inspired at a young age by the first Indian astronaut, Rakesh Sharma, Dr Ghose began studying and learning about science. She has dedicated her life to the study of physics and computers in the quantum realm. What is ‘quantum’; well it is the smallest thing in any physical entity, for example atoms and photons. These are the building blocks of the universe and can’t be seen. So how are you supposed to study them? During our time together she easily explains how quantum sciences can be studied and used to create useful things, explain how the universe works and may one day lead to advancements like teleportation.
As one of the leading women to study in these areas she is an inspiration. Dr Ghose studies an area that takes facts and knowledge and uses imagination and ideas to grow the body of knowledge on physics and quantum science. Watch our interview with Dr Ghose and the hands on demonstrations with Mya; hopefully we will bring out the scientist in you!
