Shohini Ghose

Shohini Ghose is a pioneering quantum physicist and Professor of Physics and Computer Science at Wilfrid Laurier University, and the CTO of Quantum Algorithms Institute. She has made significant contributions to the field of quantum information science, with her research focusing on quantum communication, teleportation, multiparty quantum correlations, and quantum chaos. Ghose’s groundbreaking work includes the first-ever observations of individual cesium atoms showing the effect of chaos on quantum entanglement, a feat that has been recognized in the McGraw-Hill Yearbook of Science and Technology.

Beyond her research, Ghose is a prominent advocate for gender equality in STEM fields. She founded the Laurier Centre for Women in Science (WinS) in 2012 to build a strong community for women in science through research, communication, and action. WinS supports research, provides resources and mentorship, organizes conferences and workshops, and develops policies to address structural and social barriers in science.

Ghose has held prestigious positions, including President of the Canadian Association of Physicists (2019-2020), and has been recognized with numerous awards such as the NSERC Ontario Chair for Women in Science and Engineering (2020), the Royal Society of Canada’s College of New Scholars, Artists and Scientists (2017), the Faculty of Science Award for Teaching Excellence at Wilfrid Laurier University (2018), and was featured among 25 women in UNESCO’s ‘Remarkable Women in Technology (2019). She is also a 2014 TED Fellow and a 2018 Senior TED Fellow, with her TED talks and other public engagements reaching a global audience.

Her book, “Clues to the Cosmos,” was released in India in 2019, adding to her contributions to science communication. Shohini Ghose continues to inspire and lead in the realms of quantum physics and gender equity in science, making her a pivotal figure in both fields.
