Hello world 👋, I’m a 1st year Ph.D. student in Theoretical Computer Science at the Center on Frontiers of Computing Studies, Peking University, advised by Prof. Tongyang Li. Before that, I received my B.S. in Physics with Liberal Education at Yuanpei College, Peking University.
I started Ph.D. journey at the age of 20 in Turing Doctoral Program. My research interests focus on the theoretical aspect of Quantum Computing. Specifically, I’ve been thinking about how to design provably efficient quantum algorithms for scientific computation.
