Li Liu

Li’s research interest revolves around non-local quantum systems and quantum algorithms in general.

She did her PhD at the University of Waterloo in Waterloo, Canada. Her supervisor was Richard Cleve, and her thesis was on infinite dimensional quantum entanglement. She explains:

“When the dimension of a quantum system becomes infinite, the typical mathematical framework for non-local systems is no longer sufficient to describe the system. Instead of the tensor product of Hilbert spaces, we need something called the commuting operator framework to properly define non-locality. My research was based on using these commuting operator frameworks and the C*-algebra framework to handle infinite-dimensional quantum systems”.

“I'm not sure why, but people here seem to call me by my full name. Back in Canada, everyone just calls me Li (pronounced as Lee)”, says Li.

You can find Li at the quantum offices in Vibenshuset.
