Gina Passante likes to spin yarn. And quantum particles.
As an avid knitter, she spins the yarn as a hobby. As as doctoral student at the Institute for Quantum Computing, she spins the quantum particles (or at least manipulates and measures their magnetic spins).
So if you ever need a cozy homemade blanket, or you want to implement an algorithm on a nuclear magnetic resonance quantum information processor, just ask Gina!
