MCQST cluster proudly presents its first Quantum Slam organized in collaboration with Microsoft Germany, as part of the Munich Conference on QST.
Address / Location
As part of the Munich Conference on Quantum Science and Technology on 8/9 July 2019, an event focused on strengthening the QST research network, the MCQST cluster proudly presents its first Quantum Science Slam organized in collaboration with Microsoft Germany.
About the Quantum Slam
A science slam is a series of talks in which scientists present their research to a wider audience in an entertaining and comprehensive way. In the end, the audience’s applause evaluates the presentations and determine a favorite. Since MCQST is all about quantum science and technology, the talks will focus primarily on quantum related topics.
The MCQST aims to bring quantum science into focus in an engaging way. Selected researchers present complex issues, state-of-the-art research and up-to-date topics in 10-minutes talks on stage at the Microsoft Atrium.
Curious about our quantum slammers and the topics they will be presenting? Get to know them below.
Ivana KurecicDoctoral researcher | Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics
Failing to focus on just their doctoral studies of quantum stuff, Ivana became a professional expert and hopped onto a cornucopia of topics through technical communication and science writing, ultimately landing on political science. Ivana digs cycling commutes, group theory, fountain pens, and open science, presents planetarium shows, rears beetles, draws poorly, and runs the Munich chapter of Shut Up & Write!
Quantum Slam Talk: Quantum Policy Control Theory
Markus HasenöhrlDoctoral candidate | Mathematical Physics, Technical University of Munich
Markus is a doctoral candidate at the Technical University of Munich at the chair of Mathematical Physics. His current interest is the mathematical structure of adaptive protocols in Quantum Information Theory. Specifically, Markus investigates fundamental limits for Interaction-Free measurements
Quantum Slam Talk: Defusing a bomb - the quantum way
Frauke SeeßelbergScience Slammer
During her PhD, Frauke created and experimented with ultracold polar molecules. They allow for the realisation of much more complex quantum systems than e. g. atoms. However, at some point it occurred to Frauke that her passion for this topic is usually met with scepticism (from colleagues) or with outright astonishment (from all others). As a science slammer, she wants to raise awareness for the awesomeness of ultracold, polar molecules!
Quantum Slam Talk: AlkaLove
Nicolas TolazziPhD Student | Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics
Nicolas is a passionate experimental physicist doing his PhD at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics. He enjoys the combination of programming, optics, and electronics his job requires and is always on the quest for exciting physics, interesting conversations, and new Python modules.
Quantum Slam Talk: A Photon Love Story
Matthias MaderResearch Assistent | LMU München & Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics
Besides his research on developping novel methods for ultra sensitive spectroscopy of e.g. gases in the division of Prof. Hänsch, Matthias organises science slams to bring the enthusiams for science out of the lab.
Moderator of the Quantum Science Slam
We look forward to an evening of creative and engaging talks, stimulating discussions, and networking with food and drinks.
Thank you to all who have joined us and our very talented slammers.
