About Me

I have been the director of the Hon Hai Quantum Computing Research Center in Taiwan since January 2021. Prior to this role, I was an Associate Professor at the University of Technology Sydney in Australia and a member of the UTS Centre for Quantum Software and Information from 2014 to 2020. From 2010 to 2012, I was a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Cambridge in the UK, where I was affiliated with the Centre for Quantum Information and Foundations. Before that, I worked as a research scientist with the ERATO-SORST Quantum Computation and Information Project in Japan, which was funded by the Japan Science and Technology Agency. During this time, I was also affiliated with the Department of Computer Science at the University of Tokyo. From 2014 to 2018, I held an Australian Research Council Future Fellowship.



Currently, I serve on the steering committee of

  • Conference on the Theory of Quantum Computation, Communication and Cryptography (TQC), 2021-2024;

  • Conference series on Quantum Information Processing (QIP), 2021-2024; 

  • Beyond IID in Information Theory (BIID), 2020 - .

I was the program chair of the TQC 2021 and BIID 2021.

My research interests include general topics in quantum information and computation.
