Di Fang

About me: I am an Assistant Professor of Mathematics at Duke University, and a member of Duke Quantum Center. This fall, I will be visiting and co-organizing a semester-long program on quantum computing at IPAM UCLA. Previously, 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 of partial differential equations. After joining Berkeley, I became intrigued by quantum algorithms. My current focus is quantum related problems and quantum computing, in particular, quantum algorithms for differential equations including unbounded Hamiltonian simulation and other classical differential equations.
