Janet Anders



Dr Anders arrived at the University of Exeter in 2013 and now leads Exeter’s Quantum Non-Equilibrium group, a research group working on topics in quantum thermodynamics, statistical physics and quantum information theory.

In 2015 Dr Anders was awarded the UK Institute of Physics Bates prize
