Chris Ferrie (born 1982)[1] is a Canadian [2] physicist, mathematician, researcher and children's book author.

Ferrie studied at the University of Waterloo in Waterloo, Ontario Canada, where he earned a BSc in mathematical physics, a masters in applied mathematics[1], and a PhD in applied mathematics on Theory and Applications of Probability in Quantum Mechanics.[3][4][5]

From 2013 to 2014 he worked as a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Quantum Information and Control of the University of New Mexico.

From 2015 to 2017 he was a postdoctoral research associate and since 2017 he has been working as a senior lecturer at the Centre for Engineer Quantum Systems of the University of Technology Sydney.[6]

Ferrie is the creator and author of the children's book brand Baby University, a series of board books and picture books that introduce complex subjects to children.

On the 30th of April 2020 Ferrie announced that he was joining an Australian science podcast called Sci-gasm.

Ferrie is married and father of four children.[7]
