Sirui Lu (in simplified Chinese 陆思锐)
Senior undergraduate majoring in Physics
Department of Physics, Tsinghua University
Curriculum Vitae (updated 2019-06-01)


I am currently a senior undergraduate student in the department of physics, Tsinghua University, engaging in theoretical quantum information science. I spent my junior year at MIT as an exchange student. Since the spring of 2017, I have been working on many-body physics, quantum algorithms and quantum optics under the supervision of Prof. Prof. Luming Duan. In the summer of 2016, I started working in Prof. Bei Zeng’s theoretical quantum information group, where I have investigated quantum error correction, entanglement, and state tomography.

Research Interests

My research mainly focuses on theoretical quantum information science, with emphasis on the following topics:

  • Many-body physics, tensor network, and topological phases.

  • Quantum algorithms on near-term devices: quantum machine learning and quantum approximate optimization algorithms (QAOA).

  • Quantum error correction and fault tolerance.

  • Quantum simulation on AMO platforms.

  • Quantum complexity, quantum information theory and more.

Check my research overview for details of my existing and on-going projects.

Recent News

I am glad to announce that I will work with Prof. Ignacio Cirac for my master/PhD in Munich, Germany.
