About the blog

A physicist walks into a bar is a repository for my ramblings on (mostly) the foundations of physics and philosophy of science. I intend to include a mix of summaries/commentaries-of-things-I’ve-read and expositions-on-physics-things-aimed-at-people-who-don’t-usually-think-about-them (with a dash of speculative-idea-positing and a pinch of woo-woo). I find that writing things up helps me to understand them, and having an audience (however imaginary) greatly increases the chance I’ll actually write something down. (write up? write down? what’s going on here?)

About me

I’m currently working on a Master’s degree in physics (quantum foundations/quantum information) at the Institute for Quantum Computing at the University of Waterloo in Ontario. Note to self: make quip about hiring me and link to CV. I also make music that you can find at my bandcamp, and you can look at Real Academic Writing that I’ve done on my google scholar page.
