About me

bio photo longMy name in simplified Chinese is 王鑫.

I will be a Hartree Postdoctoral Fellow in the Joint Center for Quantum Information and Computer Science (QuICS), University of Maryland from Sep 2018.

I received my doctorate from University of Technology Sydney (UTS:QSI) in 2018, under the supervision of Prof. Runyao Duan and Prof. Andreas Winter. I obtained my BS (with Wu Yuzhang Honor) from Sichuan University in 2014.

My research aims to better understand the power and limitation of computation and information processing with quantum systems. My research interests include quantum Shannon theory, quantum resource theory, optimization theory, and quantum computation theory. I am specifically interested in optimization problems in quantum information and computation. The summary of my research, the lists of my Publications and Presentations are available.

Further information can be found on my curriculum vitae.
