Jan Lukas is a theoretical physicist by training and received is B.Sc. and M.Sc. in physics from the University of Göttingen,
almost hundred years after Heisenberg, Born, Hund and Jordan founded quantum mechanics there. After an exchange semester
at the National University of Singapore and an research internship at the Singapore based quantum start-up Entropica Labs
he decided to pursue quantum software development as a career and to put NISQ devices to scientific use. Together with
a masters thesis on quenches in topological quantum matter this prepared him well to work on variational quantum
algorithms for condensed matter systems.
Outside of his research, he enjoys improving his chef skills, photography, playing the classical guitar and meeting new people from all over the world.
