Dennis Schulz finished his PhD in low temperature physics in 2021. In his thesis, he designed, built and measured MOCCA, the largest-area detector based on metallic magnetic calorimeters. During his time in research, he has started a large number of science communication projects: He was co-host of the podcast Science Pie together with Annika Brockschmidt, which got awarded the "Hochschulperle des Jahres" by the Stifterverband für die Wissenschaft. With Annika Brockschmidt, he co-authored "Goethes Faust und Einsteins Haken" (Rowohlt 2016), which was reviewed by major German newspapers and got translated to Russian and Korean. He participated in Science Slams in Germany, Switzerland and Japan, winning approximately half of them. In the South German Championships of Science Slam, he finished second and third on two different occasions with two different talks. Dennis hosts discussions and science slams. Recently, he became initiator, co-organizer and -host of the Science Pub Quiz, a science-based pub quiz in Heidelberg, drawing an audience between 100 and 200 people every month. He co-founded Kalamari Klub, an artist collective for analog photography, running a public darkroom, offering workshops, organizing exhibitions and artist residencies and publishing maybe magazine.
In IsoQuant, he will be working on science communication efforts, including the Science Pub Quiz and the SciArt residency, a cooperation between IsoQuant and Kalamari Klub, where an artist will be invited to Heidelberg for two months to develop a piece of art, inspired by the work done by the quantum physicists in IsoQuant. More events will soon follow.
