I received my PhD in physics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, working on entanglement theory with Prof. Paul Goldbart and on entangled photons and their applications in quantum information processing with Prof. Paul Kwiat. After obtaining my degree there, I stayed and focused my research on condensed matter, mainly on superconductivity, BEC, and optical lattices. During my career in UIUC, I had cultivated my interests in both condensed matter physics and quantum information science, and had collaborated closely with experimental groups such as Kwiat's Quantum Information Group and Bezryadin's Low Temperature Physics Lab. In addition, I collaborated with Prof. Brian DeMarco and Prof. Smitha Vishveshwara.

In September 2007, I moved from Urbana-Champaign to Waterloo, where I was a postdoctoral fellow associated with Prof. Michele Mosca and Prof. Ashwin Nayak. I was based in IQC and was affiliated with Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics through Prof. Mosca and Prof. Nayak. There, I also had the privilege to interact with Prof. Tony Leggett, when he spent two months in Waterloo every summer. In September 2009, I moved from Waterloo to Vancouver, where I worked with Prof. Robert Raussendorf and Prof. Ian Affleck. In September 2011, I moved to Stony Brook and started as an assistant professor at the CN Yang Institute for Theoretical Physics (YITP), Stony Brook University.
