Hello Quantum World!

“I am currently an associate professor at the physics department of SUSTech, Southern University of Science and Technology (南方科技大学), which is located in the city Shenzhen (深圳) of China. I am interested in many areas in physics, chemistry, and information science. Recently, I am focusing on research problems in quantum information science, which is highly interdisciplinary and emerging rapidly as a new field of science. The goal of quantum information science is to rethink about many questions in quantum physics from the point of view of information science, and vice versa. Ultimately, we will be able to not only understand quantum physics better but also know how to dramatically improve the ways of information processing.”
