Hello, nice to meet you. My name is David Nadlinger, statistically speaking my life is around 25 % complete, and when I'm not pondering quantum physics, you'll usually find me writing software or dabbling in music and design.
Originally from Linz, Austria, I am currently a DPhil student in the University of Oxford. My research is on trapped ion quantum information – how to build a quantum computer out of single atoms –, a field I first came in touch with during my Physics degree at ETH Zürich. I am also interested in computer science and programming language design, which has been a favorite pastime (and superb time sink) during the last few years.
Perhaps as a counter-balance to my otherwise rather analytical nature, I like to pursue the creative side of things whenever I can find some spare time (ah, academia…). Music has been very important to me for a long time – after receiving classical piano training (which I now wish I had taken more seriously), my interests later shifted more towards Jazz and improvisation. Recently, I have also been seen on various dancefloors, some more competitive than others.
I also like experimenting in graphics design whenever I get the chance to – what particularly appeals to me are typography-heavy designs in print and web, and kinetic type in motion graphics. For inspiration, I enjoy browsing well-done fonts and typography, and Dribbble is always worth a look.
The best way to contact me is probably via mail at da…@klickverbot.at (as a measure against address harvesting, please replace the dots with the three last characters of my first name). I generally try to answer any requests within at least a day or two.
