Hi, my name is Bas. I am a: Python and open-source enthusiast, Ph.D. in theoretical quantum mechanics, and full-time nerd. Originally I am from the Netherlands, but currently, I live in Redmond, Washington, USA.
Here (or here ) are some pretty pictures that I took, this is where I did my Ph.D., I work at Microsoft Quantum , and see my LinkedIn for some technical details on my daily activities.
PhD in computational Quantum Mechanics, 2020
MSc in Applied Physics, 2015
BSc in Applied Physics, 2012
Sparse scribblings on a variety of topics

I enjoy traveling and photography.
The best photos I would like to to share with the world, however, the problem is that I am to lazy too do so, therefore I wrote a program (
instacron ) that will do that job for me.
It takes a photo and adds: a random quote, camera and location info, and #hashtags related to the photo.
