Alexander Pitchford

Currently working as postgraduate researcher in quantum control theory and optimisation algorithms. I am employed by the Mathematics Dept of Aberystwyth University. I am also associated with the Controlled Quantum Dynamics Group at Imperial College.
I am part of the Administration Team for QuTiP - the Quantum Toolkit in Python. I introduced the quantum control sub-library into QuTiP. Through this I also have close ties with the Theoretical Quantum Physics Lab at RIKEN

I spent the last 9 years doing undergraduate, then PhD Physics at Aberystwyth University. Prior to that I worked as a software developer / consultant in manufacturing simulation and finance process automation.

Talks

QuTiP: the quantum toolbox in Python as an ecosystem for quantum physics exploration and quantum information science

In this talk you will learn how QuTiP, the quantum toolbox in Python (http://qutip.org), has emerged from a library to an ecosystem. QuTiP is used for education, to teach quantum physics. In research and industry, for quantum computing simulation.
