# Professor Runyao Duan

### Biography

**Runyao Duan** is currently a Professor and the Director of the Centre for Quantum Software and Information (QSI), Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology (FEIT), University of Technology Sydney (UTS). Previously he was the Director of Quantum Computation Laboratory of Centre for Quantum Computation and Intelligent Systems (QCIS), the forerunner of QSI. He received the BS and PhD from the Department of Computer Science and Technology, Tsinghua University, Beijing, China in the years of 2002 and 2006, respectively. On graduation he joined the same department as an Assistant Professor. From October 2007 to April 2008, he was a visiting Research Scientist in the University of Michigan. In December 2008, he moved to UTS as a Senior Lecturer (continuing position), and was promoted to Associate Professor in August 2010. Since July 2012, he has become an ARC (Australian Research Council) Future Fellow and Professor.

Prof Duan has been working in the fields of quantum information theory since 2002, and has made several fundamental and methodological contributions in the areas of quantum operation discrimination, quantum state discrimination, zero-error communication via noisy quantum channels, and quantum entanglement transformation. Up to now, he has published about 80 papers in top-tier international referred journals including *Physical Review Letters, **IEEE Transactions on Information Theory*, and *ACM Transactions on Programming Languages and Systems, etc*. His research works were presented at international competitive conferences including POPL, QIP, AQIS, and ISIT. He served and chaired the Steering Committee of QIP conferences (2013-2016), and was the head of QIP2015 Local Organizing Committee. He also served the Program Committee of AQIS2012, AQIS2014-6, and QIP2017.
