2021 ODA Awardee - Wenyuan Wang


Wenyuan Wang 
University of Hong Kong

Citation: For his outstanding contribution to the studies of a wide spectrum of quantum key distribution (QKD) protocols including the standard decoy-state BB84 protocol and the more recent measurement-device-independent (MDI)-QKD protocol and twin-field (TF)-QKD protocol.

Bio: Dr. Wenyuan Wang received his BSc in Physics & Computer Science from the University of Hong Kong in 2015, and Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Toronto in 2020 under the supervision of Prof. Hoi-Kwong Lo. He worked at the University of Waterloo as a postdoc for one year, and re-joined the University of Hong Kong in 2021 as a Research Assistant Professor collaborating with Prof. Hoi-Kwong Lo. Dr. Wang’s main research interest is quantum communication, especially the design/optimization of quantum key distribution (QKD) protocols as well as the combination of novel computational techniques (e.g. machine learning and semidefinite programming) with QKD.
