This issue features women physicist and ballerina Merritt Moore.
Merritt had two loves and she did not want to choose one over the other. So she did both- pursued academics and dance and excelled in both. Today Merritt is both a quantum physicist and a professional ballet dancer. She has degrees from Harvard and Oxford and stage credits with the Zurich, Boston, English National, and Norwegian National Ballets. The Quantum Ballerina is a name that would suit her the best.
Merritt’s fascinating and inspirational journey from discovering dance as a teen, to becoming someone Forbes, Harvard, and the BBC can not stop talking about!
Merritt’s fascinating story is proof that it is possible to follow a path that combines your many interests! Her advice – find things you enjoy working on and they will lead you to opportunities you could not have even dreamt of! To read Smore’s feature article on Merritt click here.
