On Monday 14 September, Harry Buhrman will be installed as a new member of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW). Buhrman is the group leader of CWI's research group Algorithms and Complexity, as well as co-founder and director of QuSoft.

Buhrman receives the KNAW membership for his exceptional scientific achievements. His research focuses on the interface of computer science, mathematics and physics. The common thread in his career is the understanding of the computing power and possibilities of computers and communication networks. Buhrman achieves this by designing new algorithms and communication protocols, and by developing techniques that demonstrate their optimality. He gained international fame for his work on quantum communication and quantum lower bounds.
