Welcome! I am currently a Ph.D. Student at MIT, advised by Prof. Song Han. I also closely work with Prof. Fred Chong at EPiQC.

Previously, I received my Master from MIT in 2020 and Bachelor from Fudan University in 2018.

My research area is Quantum Computer Architecture and ML for Quantum. I study how to efficiently transform and compile quantum algorithms to basis pulse and how to leverage ML to solve quantum system problems such as finding new noise mitigation methods, designing ansatz for VQC, etc.
