I will join the Graduate School of Mathematics, Nagoya university as a Designated Assistant Professor in Professor François Le Gall's group in Fall, 2020.

I was a Postdoctoral researcher at Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI), the national research institute for mathematics and computer science in the Netherlands, supervised by Prof. Ronald de Wolf and Dr. Michael Walter. I was also affiliated with the Research Center for Quantum Software (QuSoft).

I received my Ph.D. from Centre for Quantum Software and Information (QSI), University of technology Sydney (UTS), supervised by Prof. Runyao Duan and Dr. Youming Qiao (and informally co-advised by Prof. Andreas Winter). Before that, I received my B.Sc. (with Hongyi honour) in 2014 from School of Mathematics and Statistics, Wuhan University.

Join our online reading group “From Euclidean to Geodesic Convex Optimization”.

- Classical and quantum zero-error information theory
- Algorithms for group action
- Quantum and randomized Algorithms for linear algebra
- Noncommutative generalizations of graph theory
