Di Fang

About me: I am an Assistant Professor of Mathematics at Duke University, and a member of Duke Quantum Center (see here for a brief video intro to DQC). Prior to joining Duke in 2023, I was at University of California, Berkeley as a Morrey Visiting Assistant Professor at Department of Mathematics (hosted by Prof. Lin Lin) and Simons Quantum Postdoctoral Fellow at Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing (hosted by Prof. Lin Lin and Prof. Umesh Vazirani). I received my PhD in mathematics from University of Wisconsin-Madison.
I currently serve as an editor of the journal Quantum. My research is funded in part by NSF grant DMS-2347791 (previously DMS-2208416).

Research Interests: My research interests lie broadly in applied and numerical analysis, and partial differential equations. My current focuses are the theory of quantum computing, numerical analysis for quantum algorithms, as well as classical algorithms for quantum simulation.
I am looking for talented students. Duke students interested in quantum algorithms, please feel free to enroll in my class and/or contact me.
