2024 Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting – three young scientists from Luxembourg selected to attend

The FNR is pleased to announce that three young promising researchers from Luxembourg are among the 600 young scientists selected by the Lindau Selection Committee to attend the annual Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting. The 2024 Meeting, dedicated to physics, takes place from 30 June – 5 July in Lindau, Germany.

The Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings take place every year since 1951 and are designed as a forum for exchange, networking and inspiration. In Lindau, excellent young researchers meet the most acclaimed scientists of their field.

The young scientists selected for 2024 are outstanding undergraduate students, graduate students and post-docs under the age of 35, conducting research in the field of physics. They have successfully passed a multi-stage international selection process. More than 130 academic partners worldwide – academies, universities and foundations – nominated the candidates for participation.

The three candidates from Luxembourg, who successfully passed a multi-step international selection process (incl. a pre-selection by the FNR), and whose attendance is co-funded by the FNR, are:

Foni Raphaël Lebrun-Gallagher

“My research work focuses on developing the hardware solutions that will enable quantum computers to scale up.
The aim is to help engineer quantum computing machines that are not just esoteric tools of limited use, but practical large-scale devices capable of tackling meaningful problems and tangibly improving people’s lives.”

Youri Nouchokgwe

“I am currently working as a Junior Research and Technology Associate at LIST. My work involves developing autonomous, wireless, and reusable temperature and strain sensors for monitoring satellite health. This project is in collaboration with ThalesAlenia Space, Thales, Ecole Polytechnique, and ICUBE. Additionally, during my PhD, I conducted research on the electrocaloric effect in perovskite materials and their implementation in eco-friendly cooling devices.”

Pablo Martinez Azcona

“In my research I’m interested in studying how the interesting and counterintuitive properties of quantum systems (like the famous schrodinger’s cat experiment) are affected when the system is affected by noise or when it displays chaotic behavior (like the butterfly effect of extreme sensitivity to initial conditions).”
