Quantum Tech Pod Episode 53: Si-Hui Tan, Chief Science Officer, Horizon Quantum Computing
Chris Bishop’s latest Quantum Tech Pod with Si-Hui Tan, Chief Science Officer at Horizon Quantum Computing is live! Dr. Tan has a Bachelor of Science with honors in Physics from Caltech and PhD in Physics from MIT.
Prior to joining Horizon, she spent 5 years as a researcher at the Singapore University of Technology and Design. Dr. Tan also spent a year as a Visiting Professor at the Niels Bohr International Academy at the University of Copenhagen.
Horizon’s approach allows users to write programs in classical languages that can be compiled and run on conventional or quantum computers, without any knowledge of quantum computing. The output can be instruction sets in the language of the targeted processor and is not limited to any specific libraries.
Her advice to women interested in working in quantum? “Look for role models! It can be hard and it might take some time to find them, but surround yourself with allies and stay strong against naysayers – be yourself!”
