Finished school at only 6 years old/ Meet "Little Einstein", starts

A few months after 12-year-old Laurent Simons - often nicknamed "Belgium's Little Einstein" - received his master's degree in quantum physics, he will begin a PhD at Germany's prestigious Max Planck Institute.

At the age of 6, the boy from the coastal city of Ostend finished primary school. Three years later he started university. In 2021, he was the first 11-year-old to earn a bachelor's degree in Belgium, and in July of this year, at the age of 12, he received a master's degree in quantum physics at the University of Antwerp.

Now, he is starting a new chapter: Simons will begin his PhD at the prestigious Max Planck Institute. He had also done an internship there at the Attoworld research group in Munich, where he was researching lasers to detect cancer in people's blood with world-renowned professors.

"He likes being there, so he's staying there," his father Alexander Simons told De Standaard, without revealing what his son's doctorate will be about. /CNA.al
