Jacqui finished both her B.Sc. Applied Physics (2005) and M.Sc. Physics (2007) degrees in the University of the Philippines. In 2008, she was awarded a Synergy Studentship from the Universities of Glasgow and Strathclyde. She finished her Ph.D. in 2012 under the joint supervision of Prof. Miles Padgett and Prof. Steve Barnett. Jacqui's research interests are in fundamental quantum physics explored via optical orbital angular momentum, high-dimensional entanglement and quantum information. She is currently a research associate in the University of Glasgow.
