Dr. Danica Marsden is a Principal Quantum Computing Scientist at the Bank of Canada. She has over 20 years of experience in maximizing the impact of new technologies. In her role at the Bank of Canada, she developed the first Quantum Strategy for the Bank, as well as internal training materials on quantum computing. She defines and oversees projects in applying quantum computing to central banking research and advises on post-quantum cryptography solutions.
Dr. Marsden received her PhD in physics from the University of Pennsylvania and was a Keck Institute for Space Studies postdoctoral fellow at Caltech. She also holds a certificate in project management from UBC’s Sauder school of business.
