Juljan Krause

Postdoctoral Fellow
Technology and International Security

Juljan Krause is a Postdoctoral Fellow in Technology and International Security at the UC Institute on Global Conflict and Cooperation (IGCC) based in Washington, D.C. Juljan’s expertise is in the international security implications of emerging technologies with a particular focus on the strategic competition between the U.S. and China over quantum technologies. Juljan holds a Ph.D. in computer science and international relations from the University of Southampton in the UK, and certificates in quantum computing and quantum algorithms from MIT. For his doctoral research, Juljan modeled ERGMs on patent data to find estimates of Chinese progress in building up quantum capabilities.

Prior to moving to D.C., Juljan enjoyed a career in the UK civil service where he advised British regulators on quantum tech, AI, and the regulation of digital markets. Juljan received an MSc in the philosophy of science from the London School of Economics and a first degree in economics and mathematics from the University of Frankfurt in his native Germany. Juljan’s passion for quantum computing emerged from seminars in the philosophy of maths and physics, and he is always happy to chat about the relationship between science and technology.

Plans for the Fellowship: At IGCC, Juljan is enthusiastic about engaging with U.S. policymakers and the national security community on the challenges of quantum technologies while revising his Ph.D. thesis on the quantum internet for publication. He is also preparing publications on the decisive role of infrastructure, such as undersea fiber-optic cables, for resilient internet communication at a time of increasing great-power rivalry. A publication list can be found on Juljan’s personal website.
