Hilary Carteret, Ph.D. is a visiting researcher in the department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Waterloo, (Ont., Canada). She was an affiliate postdoctoral fellow at The Perimeter Institute until a health crisis interrupted her career.The Blewett Fellowship will allow Dr. Carteret to continue her work adapting entanglement measures and other insights from Quantum Information Theory to make them more accessible to colleagues working in other areas of physics. In particular, the fellowship will support further collaboration with Roger G. Melko, Ph.D.,developing methods for exploring long-range entanglement phenomena in large scale computer simulations of condensed matter systems, including ones at finite temperatures, and those that may exhibit quantum criticality.
