My name is Senrui Chen. I am a fourth-year PhD student in the Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering at UChicago, advised by Liang Jiang.

As a theorist, I explore various quantum applications and tackle realistic problems with their implementation. Things I have been working on include quantum learning theory, quantum system characterization, quantum error mitigation, near-term quantum advantages, etc. I am also generally interested in quantum information theory.
