Hi! My name is Jiayu Zhang. I am currently a Ph.D student in Boston University, focusing on the theory of quantum computation.

My advisor is Prof. Adam Smith. I got Bachelor’s degree from Tsinghua in 2016 and was admitted to Pennsylvania State University. Then I transferred to Boston University with my advisor in 2017.

This is my CV.
