(HPCWire) Liang Jiang, a quantum theorist who has made important contributions to secure quantum communication over long distances, has joined the Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering (PME) at the University of Chicago as a professor.
Jiang was previously an associate professor of applied physics and physics at Yale University. At Pritzker Molecular Engineering, Jiang will continue his research in quantum theory and expand his efforts to help make quantum computing and communication technology scalable and more accessible.
By joining PME, Jiang also becomes part of the Chicago Quantum Exchange, an intellectual hub and community of researchers with the common goal of advancing academic and industrial efforts in the science and engineering of quantum information. Members include UChicago, Argonne National Laboratory, Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, University of Wisconsin Madison, and Northwestern University.
