Carolyn Wood is a Deborah Jin Research Fellow with the ARC Centre of Excellence for Engineered Quantum Systems (EQUS), based at the University of Queensland, in Brisbane, Australia.

Her current research focuses on quantum machine learning, physics at the interface between quantum mechanics, general relativity, and thermodynamics, and the applications of both to current and future quantum technologies.

She is also broadly interested in quantum foundations, quantum security and science policy making, and cross-disciplinary research combining physics and linguistics.

Tutorial Introduction to $\LaTeX$

$\LaTeX$ is a document typesetting language which is extensively used in the scientific fields.

This tutorial is intended as a startup guide and introduction for undergraduate students. I first wrote it during my tenure as president of the University of Queensland’s physics club in 2013, and later club members added to the file.
