(Aug. 6, 2021) The German newspaper “Handelsblatt” has titled Prof. Dr. Claudia Linnhoff-Popien as “One of the 50 most influential women in the German tech industry“, naming her in position No. 6.
The holder of the Chair of Mobile and Distributed Systems teaches and conducts research at Ludwig-Maximilians-University LMU Munich. There, she also heads the Quantum Applications & Research Laboratory (QAR-Lab) since 2016, which is currently the only institution in the world that works on four real quantum computers.
In 2020, the computer scientist had advised the German government on the joint national strategy for quantum computing as a member of the „Expert Council for Quantum Computing“. As a result, the expert panel had handed over the national “Roadmap Quantum Computing” in Berlin in January 2021. Linnhoff-Popien had contributed significant findings on the part of computer science to the application of quantum computing.
The title from the business newspaper reached Claudia Linnhoff-Popien shortly before her vacation. She said she was very pleased and intends to continue to work hard in Germany to ensure that companies soon enter the field of quantum computing.
