From Nathan:

“In this talk, I’ll speak about open source in science and specifically in quantum science. I’ll provide my personal account, that brought me from being a user of scientific software packages to a developer and maintainer (QuTiP). I recently joined Unitary Fund, a non-profit organization where I help support the quantum-tech open source ecosystem and develop software for research on error mitigation with an extraordinary technical team.”

About Nathan:

Nathan Shammah is the CTO of Unitary Fund, a non-profit working with open-source software in quantum technology, supporting community projects and developing in-house research. He is a theoretical physicist working on dissipative many-body systems and their cooperative properties.  He is one of the lead developers of QuTiP, the quantum toolbox in Python. He obtained his PhD from the University of Southampton and was a postdoc at RIKEN, Japan, in the Theoretical Quantum Physics Laboratory. He is active in science communication and writes a monthly quantum tech newsletter.
