Laura Mančinska, QMATH, University of Copenhagen

Laura is particularly interested in the mathematics behind the phenomenon of entanglement and how it can be leveraged for operational and cryptographic applications. In addition to her main interest in entanglement she has worked on a range of various topics including LOCC, quantum computational supremacy, quantum thermodynamics. Laura has just started as an Associate Professor at QMATH, University of Copenhagen.

Fernando Pastawski, Free University of Berlin

Fernando Pastawski is a theoretical physicist working in the field of 
quantum information. His main research focus is on quantum 
error-correction with special emphasis on their physical interpretation 
and connections.  These include connection of topological codes as 
quantum phases of matter, self-correcting codes as thermally stable 
phases and more recently investigating the information structure that 
holography imposes on quantum codes. One of the questions which drive me  is exploring how the classical world, which we perceive in our daily 
lives, emerges from the quantum world, and how ideas from quantum error correction might allow us to understand this.
