University of Oxford

It was a pleasure to welcome Dr. Merritt Moore to our conference. She brought a fascinating and unique perspective from her split life as a dancer and quantum physicist. Her experiences combining two professions at an elite level provided great inspiration for our delegates. Merritt emphasizes meaningful messages and her vita and her achievements are really outstanding. We look forward to working with Merritt again in the future.
