Paul Fährmann explained his scientific approach to the expert jury in an online pitch during the Berlin Science Week: For his master thesis, which dealt with resource-based perspectives on near and long-term quantum computing, he optimised the algorithmic runtime of noisy and error-corrected quantum computers.
The first prize is endowed with six thousand euros for study trips. Paul Fährmann hopes to go on a research trip as soon as pandemic travel restrictions are lifted. As a doctoral student in the Eisert’s research group, he actively cooperates with scientists from Sydney, Linz and Oxford. Paul Fährmann is looking forward to vivid discussions in person with his international colleagues.
