Biography

Jana Huisman was named the Photonics21 Young Ambassador for Photonics Education in 2013. She studies physics and nanotechnology at the Danish Technical University, previously in Bonn, DE.

She says: "The Internet is a fundamental part of our daily lives. I want to make it faster, better and accessible for everybody. I believe that research and development of new hardware, particularly within photonics, can be key to this. I have a particular interest in the social implications of digitalisation, including its role in empowering women. I'm a fierce proponent of women in science.
