Menno Veldhorst is a group leader at QuTech and he leads the QuTech Academy. Veldhorst is an expert in quantum computation with quantum dots and was the first to realize a universal quantum gate set with silicon qubits, which opened a path to quantum technology based on advanced semiconductor manufacturing. His group recently advanced the state-of-the-art of quantum dot qubits by demonstrating a four-qubit germanium quantum processor. For his contributions, Veldhorst received several prices including the Nicholas Kurti Science prize by Oxford Instruments, and Veldhorst is included in MIT Technology Review’s prestigious list of 35 innovators under 35 as a visionary. As QuTech Academy lead, Veldhorst aims to prepare society and industry for the quantum revolution, and the online courses provided by QuTech Academy has already attracted over 50.000 students.
