I received my PhD on superconducting quantum circuits in 2017 from TU Munich and continued as a Postdoc in Helsinki at Aalto University. Helsinki is a great hub for quantum technology, which allowed me to receive a prestigious Marie Curie Fellowship from the European Union. In addition, I have been coordinating the local Quantum Computer Project, where 8 research groups and the State Research Center VTT are co-developing a quantum processor. Based on these efforts and together with three co-founders, I have been spinning off a company, IQM Finland Oy. Since February 2019 I am the CEO of IQM and we are now starting operations on the research campus in Espoo (Helsinki area). IQM’s goal is to develop the world’s first commercially viable quantum computer.
