Tzu-Chieh Wei

Associate Professor 
C.N. Yang Institute for Theoretical Physics 
Stony Brook University 
(631) 632-7966 


Tzu-Chieh Wei received his PhD in Physics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, working on entanglement theory in quantum information science and on entangled photons for information processing. He stayed and extended his research to condensed matter theory and materials, working on superconductivity, Bose-Einstein condensation, cold atoms in optical lattices. After UIUC, he worked as a postdoctoral fellow at the Institute for Quantum Computing, at University of Waterloo, and focused on quantum information processing and quantum computational complexity. Later he moved to the University of British and studied various models of quantum computation and in particular, extended the one-way quantum computer to condensed matter systems. In 2011 he joined the faculty of the C. N. Yang Institute for Theoretical Physics. His current interests include quantum information/computation, condensed-matter physics, and numerical simulations of quantum systems using various tensor-network methods.
