About Conor Ryan

I am a fourth year undergraduate pursuing a B.A. in Theoretical Physics in Trinity College Dublin. The research project I am doing is titled "Computational Study of Dipolar Noise in Molecular Spin Qubits". This project is in the field of quantum technologies and in it I aim to investigate quantum decoherence in molecular spin systems through the use of numerical simulations.

Thanks Conor for such an interesting and informative blog post. I am so pleased you have had a good Laidlaw experience. I am particularly happy to read that you think the ethical leadership training has given you the ability to spot ethical blindspots and will help you to be a more ethical leader. I am not sure that we have quite nailed the best way of helping our Scholars build ethical resilience, or "moral muscle", so very interested to hear any other feedback or comments. What was your LiA?

Unfortunately not. I tried to learn some before I went out there but I didn't have the time to learn a lot.

Hi Susanna. I think when it comes to the ethical leadership training just being able to see that there is some way of finding solutions to broader ethical issues was good because these issues are typically in a grey area where it can be hard to be confident of solving any difficult ethical problem.
For my LiA I worked in the University of Parma in Italy and I did some science outreach work with secondary school students there through the university. I used some research I was doing to introduce the students to some modern physics ideas and then tried to make the ideas clearer for them and help them see what possible directions there are to go in the field. This was because I feel like lots of students who are enthusiastic about studying physics are sometimes put off by the theories being used and where you can go in the field so I wanted to try and clear up any misconceptions and problems they had with any of this.
