Merritt Moore’s career has crossed disciplines. Her quantum mechanics research has focused on the topic of quantum computing. Her career in ballet has allowed her to perform in ballets across the world. Her current residency at Harvard's ArtLab combines ballet and science. Her performances at Harvard's ArtLab are focused on showing her relationship with science and also on teaching science through the performance. Moore has studied physics at Harvard University and the University of Oxford. Her ballet career has brought her to perform with many well known companies like Zurich Ballet and Boston Ballet.

Merritt Moore’s work in academia has focused on quantum computing. On both works she has contributed to, she is listed as a coauthor. The first work, published in 2013 during her time at Oxford, is about using a system of qubits and CPHASE gates to try to create a more efficient quantum computing system. The second paper, published in 2016, was about a system of quantum computing that combines quantum computing with classical computing done on a separate server. In this paper, researchers tested whether or not measurements of light could be used to securely carry information between the servers.

Merritt Moore’s career as a science educator led her to speak at TEDxOxbridge and star on the television show Astronauts: Do You Have What It Takes?. She has performed ballet at unconventional venues like the Victoria and Albert Museum. Moore spoke at the Forbes Women's Summit, a 'Women in STEM' panel, and for the Princeton Physics Department.

She also performed with robots with London Contemporary Ballet Theater. Moore practiced George Balanchine’s Symphony in C at the Norwegian National Ballet company.


Merritt Moore attended Harvard University and majored in physics. She began attending Harvard in 2006 and knew she wanted to major in physics after taking it in high school and finding an interest in it. While at Harvard, she won the Michael von Clemm Fellowship, an exchange program between Harvard and Oxford open to seniors. In 2011, she graduated Magna Cum Laude from Harvard with a bachelor's degree in physics. After graduating from Harvard, Moore attended the University of Oxford from 2012 - 2017 where she earned her PhD in Atomic and Laser Physics. She continued to dance ballet professionally throughout her time at both universities. While at Harvard, she took a yearlong break from her studies to pursue ballet with Zurich Ballet, the largest ballet company in Switzerland.
