Nana Liu received her doctorate in 2016 from the University of Oxford as a Clarendon Scholar. She was later a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Center for Quantum Technologies in the National University of Singapore and the Singapore University of Technology and Design, before joining Shanghai Jiao Tong University in late 2018 and the Institute of Natural Sciences in 2020. Nana is one of MIT Technology Review’s 10 Innovators Under 35 in the Asia-Pacific region for 2019. Her research focus is on employing quantum resources for both quantum computation and sensing. Her research also lies at the interface between quantum computation, security and machine learning, which will be useful in building a future quantum internet.
