## News

- Mathematical Challenges of Quantum Algorithms for Open Quantum Systems, Monday, Oct. 21 – Thursday, Oct. 24, 2024 (co-organized with Yunchao Liu, Jianfeng Lu, Ewin Tang, Lexing Ying)
- Learning by teaching in Oberwolfach! See Arbeitsgemeinschaft: Quantum Signal Processing and Nonlinear Fourier Analysis and poster (co-organized with András Gilyén and Christoph Thiele)
- I organize a Quantum Many-Body Seminar every semester (a.k.a. 290 seminar). Please contact the ``Moderator'' if you are interested in participation or giving a talk (see the link for more detailed information).
- UC Berkeley / LBNL joint Applied Math Seminar.

- I apologize for being unable to respond to emails regarding potential
**PhD supervision inquiries**. I typically mentor one to two PhD students each year, on subjects broadly related to computational quantum many-body problems (which includes quantum computation). Your Bachelor's degree does not need to be in Mathematics. However, please make sure that you will be comfortable to take our prelim exam after being admitted to the program. If you are interested, please apply to our graduate program directly.

*I aspire to be a Quantum Chemist in disguise in the Department of Mathematics.*

I am a Professor in the Department of Mathematics at UC Berkeley, and a Senior Faculty Scientist in the Mathematics Group at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. My research focuses on solving quantum many-body problems via both classical and quantum algorithms. These algorithms are often valuable across various domains, including quantum chemistry, quantum physics, materials science, and quantum information theory. I am very fortunate to have received the Sloan Research Fellowship (2015), the National Science Foundation CAREER award (2017), the Department of Energy Early Career award (2017), the (inaugural) SIAM Computational Science and Engineering (CSE) early career award (2017), the Presidential Early Career Awards for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE) (2019), the ACM Gordon Bell prize (Team) (2020), and the Simons Investigator in Mathematics award (2021).

## Books and lecture notes
