Di Fang

About me: I am currently a Simons Quantum Postdoctoral Fellow, hosted by Prof. Lin Lin and Prof. Umesh Vazirani, at Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing and Department of Mathematics, UC-Berkeley since 2022 Spring. I was a Morrey Visiting Assistant Professor at Department of Mathematics, University of California, Berkeley, hosted by Prof. Lin Lin from Aug 2019 to Jan 2022. I received my PhD in mathematics from University of Wisconsin-Madison. My research is funded in part by NSF grant DMS-2208416.
Research Interests: My research interests lie broadly in applied and numerical analysis of partial differential equations. After joining Berkeley, I became intrigued by quantum algorithms. My current focus is quantum related problems and quantum computing, in particular, quantum algorithms for differential equations including unbounded Hamiltonian simulation and other classical differential equations.
