I'm grateful to have been accepted to do a master's degree in quantum information at the University of Waterloo! Learning and science are my favorite hobbies, and getting paid (scholarships) to do both is a dream come true. It wasn't easy to accept the offer, though, since it meant leaving the Zcash project and having less opportunities to hang out with the Zcash team.
In my applications to scholarships, I mentioned how science communicators like Carl Sagan, Richard Feynman, and Neil deGrasse Tyson inspire me, how I want to be like them, and how I'll work hard to popularize my work. I believe creating new scientists is just as valuable as doing novel research. So, with those promises in mind, I'll be blogging about some of the cool stuff I learn right here!
I'm on the road from Calgary to Waterloo right now (thanks to my Dad for driving me and all my computer crap across the country), so hopefully the first post will be up in a week or two!
