Dr. Tatjana Wilk is the General Manager of the Munich Center for Quantum Science and Technology (MCQST), which is a Cluster of Excellence funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) that started in January 2019. Before that, Tatjana worked several years as a senior researcher at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics in Garching on single-atom cavity-QED. While coordinating a large European initial training network (ITN), Tatjana discovered her talent and her passion for science management. Now she enjoys working on forming a strong quantum community in Munich, on connecting academia and industry in Bavaria, on strengthening the education in quantum engineering and on engaging the public in quantum technology. With many supporters and like-minded colleagues in town, she is convinced that Munich is the ideal location for becoming the European Quantum Valley.
