Kilian Kirchgaßner writes about Tommaso Calarco in this enjoyable read portraying him as one of the most influential scientists in the field of quantum physics who likes to have his guitar within reach and who almost ended up as a primary school teacher. Tommaso speaks about how a familial two body problem got him his postdoc appointment in Innsbruck and how the 20 page Quantum Manifesto came to be. Tommaso is contributing to ML4Q’s scientific program as part of the Focus Area 3 team working on “Decoherence, measurements, and error correction”.
