Xin Wang is a QuICS Hartree Postdoctoral Fellow in quantum information and computer science. His research aims to understand the power and limits of information processing with quantum systems. He has broad research interests including quantum Shannon theory, quantum resource theory, zero-error information theory, quantum computing, and quantum networks.
He studies the capabilities of communication over quantum channels, the structure of quantum entanglement, and the quantum resource theories with applications in quantum information processing. He is also interested in the connections of quantum computation and information to optimization, Markov chains, thermodynamics, and learning theory.
Wang received his doctorate in quantum information from the University of Technology Sydney in 2018, under the supervision of Prof. Runyao Duan and Prof. Andreas Winter.
