Stephanie Wehner is a physicist and computer scientist at the Centre for Quantum Technologies, National University of Singapore, born in Wuerzburg, Germany. She studied at the University of Amsterdam and obtained her Ph.D. at CWI, before moving to Caltech as a postdoctoral researcher under John Preskill. Since 2010 Wehner is an assistant professor in the department of computer science at the National University of Singapore and a Principal Investigator at the Centre for Quantum Technologies.
Together with Jonathan Oppenheim she discovered that the amount of non-locality in quantum mechanics is limited by the uncertainty principle. She is also known for introducing the noisy-storage model in quantum cryptography.
