Portrait image of Florian Marquardt

Florian Marquardt is a theoretical physicist whose current focus is on applying machine learning to scientific discovery and discovering physical systems that help for machine learning. He has a long-standing track record in areas bridging nanophysics and
quantum optics, among them significant contributions to the theory of cavity optomechanics and the theory of superconducting circuit quantum electrodynamics. He is currently a scientific director at the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light in Erlangen, Germany, as well as a professor at the local university. He studied at the university of Bayreuth, Germany, then did his PhD in Basel, Switzerland (finishing in 2002), afterwards went on to a postdoctoral stay at Yale university and a junior research group leader position at the university of Munich, before moving to Erlangen.
