Charlie Marcus, Quantum Physicist

"I want to tell a story about how man is able to create things that never existed before, and that the study of science is now not just the study of naturally occurring phenomena in the absence of a human mind creating them."

Niels Bohr Institute of the University of Copenhagen

Quantum physicist Charlie Marcus—a principal researcher at Microsoft Quantum Research and a professor at the Niels Bohr Institute of the University of Copenhagen—is engaged in one of the most ambitious quests in modern technology: the creation of a true quantum computer.

In an interview, Marcus discusses why facts are never complicated, what working in a music store taught him about doing science, and the parallels between the use of knots in early Mesoamerican culture and his quantum computing work today.
