Beni Yoshida (Junior Faculty at Perimeter Institute)

Research interests

- I am interested in quantum information theory and its applications to problems in many-body physics, specifically black hole information problems.

- I and my colleagues will be starting a research program focusing on quantum matter at Perimeter Institute. 

- Seems I have jumped into a black hole

Employment etc

- I am a junior faculty at Perimeter Institute.

- I was a Qubit Fellow for the Simons colloboration "It from Qubit", led by Patrick Hayden, Matt Headrick and other great researchers.

- I was a five-year senior postdoctoral scholar at Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics, supervised by Daniel Gottesman, Guifre Vidal and Rob Myers. I am also a part of tensor network initiative

- I was a Burke fellow (David & Ellen Lee fellowship) in Theoretical Physics at Caltech, affiliated with Institute for Quantum Information and Matter and Walter Burke Institute for Theoretical Physics, supervised by John Preskill.

- I was a graduate student of Department of Physics at MIT, affiliated with Center for Theoretical Physics from 2007-2012. My Ph.D supervisors were Edward Farhi and Peter Shor. 

- I was an undergraduate student of Department of Physics at University of Tokyo from 2003-2007 where I studied mathematical physics under Miki Wadati.
