Hannes Bernien, PhD
Assistant Professor of Molecular Engineering, University of Chicago
Hannes Bernien is an Assistant Professor of Molecular Engineering at the University of Chicago. He studies quantum many-body physics and quantum information processing, and seeks to develop new ways of engineering large, complex quantum systems.
Professor Bernien’s research combines techniques from quantum control and quantum optics with ultracold atoms and nanotechnology in order to develop new ways of engineering large, fully controlled quantum systems for quantum information processing, quantum simulation and quantum networks. He earned his MSc in physics from Hannover University in Germany and his PhD in physics from Technical University Delft, the Netherlands.
