About Anastasia

I went through the Flashpoint @ GT startup incubator, got funded, and got a crash course in Lean Startup and entrepreneurship, presented to VCs in Atlanta, New York, and Silicon Valley with my first startup CourseShark.

I'm a Georgia Tech 2012 graduate in Physics - quantum computing. I want to take the 4 years of research, and spin that into a company based on this up and coming technology. I have experience on the hardware side of quantum computing and quantum telecommunication, and now have worked in customer success/technical project management in ecommerce big data, and consulted for clients in various industries on community building and marketing. I'm comfortable working in small teams and startups as well as executing within a large organization. I've worked for companies out of YCombinator and StartX.

I have a blog on quantum computing tech and keep track of the developments in the field, which is how I got into security research. I also have started a blog about finance. I'm interested in quantum encryption technology and other related tech, and am looking to be involved with science, big data/AI, fintech, security, and related fields. Reach out!
