Carolyn Wood

Carolyn is a Deborah Jin Research Fellow/Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of Queensland, where she works with Associate Professor Sally Shrapnel.

Her research is focused on physics at the interface between quantum mechanics, general relativity and thermodynamics, particularly when viewed through the lens of quantum information theory. She is developing new theoretical tools for describing the quantum-gravity interface, with the goal of advancing understanding of the new arising effects on quantum information processing and quantum communications.

She is also broadly interested in quantum foundations, quantum computing and artificial intelligence, and cross‐disciplinary research combining physics and linguistics.

Carolyn completed her PhD and Bachelor of Science at the University of Queensland, and also holds Bachelor's degree in applied linguistics from Griffith University.

Bachelor of Science (Honours), UQ, 2015; Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Languages and Applied Linguistics, Griffith University, 2008.
