Women in Photonics, Silicon Valley, in collaboration with IEEE Young Professionals (YP) and IEEE Women in Engineering (WIE), Miami section affinity groups are proud to present an event titled:
"The Spectrum spanning Quantum Computing to Fashion: Perspectives of a physicist artist!!"

We are delighted to have Dr. Kitty Y. M. Yeung as our speaker. She is a physicist, engineer, artist, fashion designer, maker and musician. She currently works as a Sr. Quantum Architect at Microsoft Quantum Systems. She's the producer of Microsoft's quantum learning materials, including the MS Learn quantum modules and the Quantum Learning website; author of comic series Quantum Computing & Some Physics; lecturer at HackadayU and Microsoft Reactor on Quantum Computing. To drive integration between science and art, she also founded a sustainable and STEAM fashion brand, Art by Physicist, and leads the Fashion Hack at Microsoft.

Topic:

The Spectrum spanning Quantum Computing to Fashion: Perspectives of a physicist artist!!

"Your work is to discover your work and then with all your heart to give yourself to it." -Buddha

Kitty's career path exemplifies the virtue of combining work with passion. Figuring out the optimal balance between one's strengths and their place in society can lead to the often elusive work satisfaction, and success in the true sense, far beyond making money or achieving fame.
Through this talk, Kitty will walk us through how she weaved in (literally!) her passion for arts into her education and training in physics and technology. She will tell her story about how she navigated her way through the indecisions of working in a corporate environment vs. a startup. She currently juggles her time between three 'different' jobs, but to her, they are all in perfect sync!
