From Astrophysics to Quantum Computing Algorithms: A Software Engineer's Journey | Episode 13

One of the hottest jobs in quantum computing in the coming years will be that of software engineer. The need for translating complex business needs to quantum algorithms and code will only grow. In this episode, we talk to a software engineer who’s had a unique career path. Anna Hughes earned her Ph.D. in stellar astrophysics and went from working on the potential habitability of exoplanets to working on a software platform that can help companies with portfolio optimization, derivative pricing, cyclical arbitrage and other use cases. Join host Konstantinos Karagiannis for a chat about all this with Dr. Anna Hughes from Agnostiq.
