He was honored for pioneering contributions to the development of quantum technology platforms based on Rydberg atoms as well as color centers in diamond.

Hannes Bernien has been Assistant Professor at the Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering (PME) at the University of Chicago (USA) since 2019. He studies quantum many-body physics and quantum information processing, and seeks to develop new ways of engineering large, complex quantum systems. His academic career has taken him from studying physics at Leibniz Universität Hannover (Diploma 2009), to completing his PhD Cum Laude in 2014 under the supervision of Prof. R. Hanson at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands, and finally to Harvard University (USA) in 2015 as a postdoctoral fellow with Prof. M. Lukin. Bernien has received numerous awards and prizes for his research, including the New Horizons in Physics Prize (2023), the Sloan Research Fellowship (2021), and the International Quantum Technology Young Scientist Award (2020).
