Andrew White was raised in a Queensland dairy town, before heading to Brisbane to study chemistry, maths and physics. Deciding he wanted to know what the cold feels like, he moved to Canberra and Germany for his PhD, then moved to Los Alamos National Laboratory, quickly discovering that there can be more than enough snow to hide a cactus, but not nearly enough to prevent amusing your friends when you sit down. He has researched shrimp eyes, nuclear physics, optical vortices, and many things quantum. His current research aims to explore and exploit the full range of quantum behaviours—notably entanglement—with an eye to engineering new technologies and scientific applications.
