Professor MSO


My research career began in quantum physics and my group is still very active in this field (Quantum Measurement & Manipulation Group). This work led me to using citizen science and develop the research games platform ScienceAtHome. As I explored the possibilities of crowdsourcing for research and the importance of keeping humans firmly in technological loops, my Center for Hybrid Intelligence took form. 

Areas of Expertise

  • Hybrid intelligence, artificial intelligence and machine learning

  • Individual and collective problem-solving

  • Digital transformation and 21st century skills

  • Creativity assessment and collaborative learning

  • Gamification, crowdsourcing and citizen science

  • Experimental and theoretical control of ultracold atoms
  • Quantum education and training
