Dr. Thomas Strohm received his Ph.D. in 1999 at the MPI for Solid State Research in Stuttgart where he did theoretical work on high-temperature superconductors in Prof. Cardona’s group. Thereafter, he joined the Corporate Research division of Robert Bosch GmbH. For more than 10 years, he worked in SW engineering and as a system and SW architect. Among other projects, he was responsible for the development of a SW engineering curriculum and until the end of 2016 gave courses on System and SW architecture at Bosch. In 2013, he started scouting Quantum Cryptography and, later, Quantum Computing. Currently, Thomas is coordinating the Quantum Technologies activities at Bosch. He is also part of Europe’s Quantum Community Network (QCN) and the Coordination Office (FCO) of Europe’s Quantum Flagship Initiative and furthermore active in founding the European Quantum Industry Consortium (QuIC). Thomas is also part of the QRANGE public-funded project and contributes to the research on modeling quantum random number generators.
