Julia Cramer is a quantum physicist and science communication researcher, interested in the boundary between fundamental science and society. She is fascinated about communicating science to the (non-obvious) publics. Her research focus is on Quantum and Society.
Julia Cramer is an assistant professor at Science Communication and Society, IBL, and the Leiden Institute of Physics, LION. Julia's research is focused on the impact of quantum science and technology on society from a science communication perspective.
Cramer is one of the members of Quantum Delta NL, focusing on the Ethical, Legal and Societal Aspects (ELSA) of quantum technology. Julia Cramer is member of the Young Academy Leiden, board member of the Dutch Physics Association (NNV), co-founder of Women in Quantum Development (WIQD), member of the CBS communicatie-adviesraad and member of the Physics Scientific Advisory Board of the Lorentz Center.
Our research group focuses on studying the boundary between quantum technology and society. We focus on:
- Content analyzes of existing communication about quantum science and technology such as outreach by experts, media coverage, explanation and background in policy documents.
- Development of measuring instruments for research into the attitude of specific societal groups towards quantum technology. What are the concerns, questions and expectations of the technology?
- Research into the effect of empirically developed interventions on the attitude of participants in such interventions.
Cramer studied Applied Physics at Delft University of Technology and ETH Zurich. She obtained her PhD (funded by the Casimir Prize) in 2016 on ‘Quantum Error Correction with Spins in Diamond’ at QuTech at Delft University of Technology. During her PhD she was one of the Faces of Science of the KNAW and she participated in the theater show Science Battle. She is fascinated about communicating science to the (non-obvious) publics. During her PhD in quantum science, Julia Cramer realized a great challenge and opportunity to connect to society in an early stage. She is involved in National and European groups focussing on the impact of quantum technology on society.
