      Ben Schumacher presents the Strange and Wonderful World of Quantum Physics

      Six Impossible Things, an Exploration of the Strange and Wonderful World of Quantum Physics is presented by Ben Schumacher.

      Ben Schumacher is a Professor of Physics at Kenyon College and one of the founders of the field of quantum information science. As a graduate student at the University of Texas in the 1980's, he was lured away from research in black hole physics to begin exploring the fundamental connections between quantum mechanics and information.

      He is a recipient of the Quantum Communication Award from the International Organization for Quantum Communication, Measurement, and Computing, and the Rosenbaum Fellowship from the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences.

      He has held visiting research positions at Cambridge University, Caltech, and the University of Bristol. He has also writtenn two physics textbooks and produced four video lecture series for The Great ourses on topics ranging from quantum mechanics to gravity.

      Free and open to the public, this event is presented by Last Frontiers in Quantum Information Science and is hosted by UAA Department of Physics.
