I am looking for faculty positions to start in Fall 2023.
I am Qipeng (Kevin) Liu. I am a Simons Quantum Postdoctoral Fellow at Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing, hosted by Shafi Goldwasser and Umesh Vazirani. I earned my Ph.D. at Princeton University in 2021, where I was very fortunate to be advised by Prof. Mark Zhandry.
I have a broad interest in theoretical computer science. I focus on quantum computing, quantum information and cryptography in a quantum world. This includes
analyzing and understanding quantum query complexity and thus post-quantum security of existing cryptosystems;
building cryptography with the power of quantum information and quantum computers.
I received my B.E. from Tsinghua University, where I was advised by Prof. Pingzhong Tang and Jian Li.
