Sean Barrett


Sean talking at the MBQC workshop in Oxford in 2007.I was greatly saddened to hear of the death of Sean Barrett on Friday morning. It seems that a taxi he was traveling in was hit by a stolen SUV, while he was on his way to a conference in Perth. I was really shocked to hear the news.

Sean is pretty known within the quantum computing community for his work on entanglement generation and on measurement based computation. Indeed, one of his papers (on double-heralding entanglement generation) was a big influence on much of my PhD research.

Sean was a great guy, friendly, lively, and very smart. His death is a great loss to the community and my thoughts are with his family and loved ones at what must be a very difficult and painful time.

    A tragic loss to science. He was an upcoming star in the field, and one of the friendliest, best-humoured guys I knew.
