Current position

I'm an associate professor in Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) at The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK). I'm also a member in Institute of Theoretical Computer Science and Communications (ITCSC).


I obtained my B.S. in mathematics, Fudan University in 1999, with the GPA highest in the department. I then got my M.S. in computer science, Tsinghua University in 2002, under supervision of Prof. Mingsheng Ying. I was lucky to be one of the first two students of Prof. Ying in Tsinghua. I then went to US and got my Ph.D. in computer science, Princeton University in 2006, under supervision of Prof. Andrew Chi-Chih Yao, the Turing Award winner of 2000. It was my great honor to be his last student in United States. After that, I worked in NEC Laboratories America for a summer, before moving to California Institute of Technology for a two-year postdoc in Computer Science Department and Institute for Quantum Information. I had a great pleasure to work with my advisors Prof. Alexei Kitaev, Prof. John Preskill and Prof. Leonard Schulman.
