Physicist Anton Akhmerov (1984) conducts research into quantum mechanical systems and nano-superconductors using computer simulations. He is also interested in open-source software and open data. He developed a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) and has taught thousands of people about topology in quantum mechanics. He also developed ‘Zesje’, software that efficiently and systematically corrects exams, and has received the 2018 Delft Educational Fellowship for this work. Akhmerov is a member of the editorial board of the New Journal of Physics, an open access publication. He wants to use his membership of The Young Academy to contribute to policy changes for science.
