Neil Gillespie

Senior Manager, Quantum Science


Neil is a mathematician who is interested in applying the ideas and techniques from pure mathematics to real world scenarios. Most recently this has involved looking at packing problems in Euclidean space and their connection to physics. Neil completed his PhD in Mathematics from the University of Western Australia in 2011. After a post-doctoral position in Australia, he returned to the UK to join the Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research as a research fellow, based at the University of Bristol. Outside of work Neil loves music, swimming, cycling and spending many, many hours playing monsters with his son.
