Associate Professor


I am an Associate Professor at the Thrust of Artificial Intelligence, Information Hub, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (Guangzhou), China. My research investigates a broad range of perspectives of quantum information science, including quantum communication, entanglement theory, near-term quantum applications, and quantum machine learning. I am also an editor of Quantum.

Previously, I was a Staff Researcher at the Institute for Quantum Computing at Baidu Research, where I focused on the research on quantum computing and the development of Baidu Quantum Platform. In particular, I led the development of Paddle Quantum, a Python library for quantum machine learning. From 2018 to 2019, I was a Hartree Postdoctoral Fellow at the Joint Center for Quantum Information and Computer Science (QuICS) at the University of Maryland, College Park. I received my doctorate in quantum information from the University of Technology Sydney in 2018, under the supervision of Prof. Runyao Duan and Prof. Andreas Winter. I obtained my B.S. in mathematics (with Wu Yuzhang Honor) from Sichuan University in 2014.

I am a recipient of National Young Talents Project, Top Young Chinese Scholars in Artificial Intelligence (AI+X), Chancellor’s List for Outstanding Thesis of UTS, and Outstanding Self-financed Overseas Student Award.

A full list of my publications can be found on Google Scholar or arXiv. My full CV is available here.

Hiring: I am looking for self-motivated students (PhD, MPhil, RA) interested in quantum information and quantum machine learning. Check out details. If you are interested in joining the journey from the fundamentals of quantum information to the frontier of quantum computing, please feel free to contact!
