Wolfgang Scherer obtained his PhD in Theoretical High Energy Physics from the University of Rochester, USA. Subsequently, he worked for ten years as an assistant Professor at the TU Clausthal in Germany before settling in London, where, until five years ago, he worked in risk management for a financial institution.
His scientific interests include geometric methods in mathematical physics, fundamental problems in quantum mechanics and quantum computing. He is the author of two recent textbooks on The Mathematics of Quantum Computing.
He also takes pleasure in communicating the joy of mathematics to the younger generation, and is an aficionado of two-wheeled vehicles, with and without motor.
