Yongshan Ding


I am a third-year PhD student at the University of Chicago, advised by Fred Chong. My research interest is in computer architectures, quantum algorithms, quantum information and error correction. I build systems that enable efficient scheduling and mapping from high-level circuits to noisy near-term devices, and design algorithms using tools from property testing, representation theory and topology.

Before UChicago, I received my BS degrees in Computer Science and Physics from Carnegie Mellon University.
