Zhi Li

My research interests mainly focus on the intersection of quantum information theory and condensed matter physics. Additionally, I am interested in theoretical computer science and its applications in physics. The topics I have worked on include quantum dynamics, quantum error-correcting codes, quantum algorithms, quantum complexity theory, and topological phases of matter.
