Stephanie Wehner

Stephanie Wehner is one of the winners of the Ammodo Science Awards 2019. She receives a monetary prize of 300,000 euro. The funds can be used to explore new directions in pure scientific research.

Stephanie Wehner is working on a fundamental challenge: how entanglement can be created over long distances in order to then make a quantum internet possible. Entangling is a central concept in quantum mechanics, enabling safe communication and super-fast coordination. She now wants to realise this in the planned quantum network around Delft.

Stephanie Wehner is Antoni van Leeuwenhoek Professor at QuTech at Delft University of Technology.
