Read the introductions of the honorary doctors. Please find the introductions of Sabrina Maniscalco and Jukka Pekola below.
Jukka Pekola is a professor of quantum nanophysics at Aalto University (Finland). He and his group study mesoscopic physics and quantum sensors. His work on the heat transport of nanostructures has set new standards in this field and his experimental studies in the middle ground between classical and quantum physics are unique on a world scale. The micro and nano-scale thermometers and refrigerators he has developed are cutting-edge achievements in nanophysics.
Prof. Pekola is the Director of the national centre of excellence in research, Quantum Technology Finland (QTF), Acting Director of the Finnish quantum institute, InstituteQ, and the Scientific Director of the national research infrastructure for micro, nano and quantum technologies, OtaNano. He is a recipient of a distinguished ERC Advanced Grant, two-time Academy Professor and recipient of the Simon Memorial Prize 2020.
Sabrina Maniscalco is a professor of quantum information and logic at the University of Helsinki, and an Adjunct Professor at Aalto University (Finland). She and her group studies theory of open quantum systems, and in particular non-Markovian quantum processes. She has coordinated several international and interdisciplinary projects and is recognised as one of the leading experts in quantum technologies.
Prof. Maniscalco is the Vice Director of QTF, Leader of Education activities of InstituteQ, and serves in the scientific advisory board of severals international institutions, such as the Institute for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information (Austria) and the Quantum Technology initiative at CERN. She is CEO and co-founder of Algorithmiq Ltd, a startup focusing on quantum algorithms and software.
