Electri­cal Engineer­ing and Computer Science Depart­ment, Berlin Insti­tute of Technology

Anna Pappa is a Emmy Noether Junior Group Leader at the Electri­cal Engineer­ing and Computer Science Depart­ment of the Berlin Insti­tute of Technology.

Her field of research is quantum commu­ni­ca­tion and crypto­graphic proto­cols. Her research aims to bridge the gap between theory and exper­i­ments in order to maximally exploit the full poten­tial of quantum infor­ma­tion process­ing. She has worked exten­sively on delegated quantum compu­ta­tion, verifi­ca­tion of quantum resources and quantum network routing as neces­sary processes for wide-scale quantum compu­ta­tion, and is actively involved in the indus­trial appli­ca­tion and exploita­tion of quantum technologies.

Apart from the 6‑year Emmy Noether grant of the German Research Associ­a­tion (DFG), Anna Pappa has received several other grants includ­ing two Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individ­ual Fellow­ships, an Alexan­der von Humboldt postdoc­toral fellow­ship and an Anita Borg Google fellowship.
