Bo Yang

Who Am I?

Thank you for visiting my webpage! My name is Bo Yang (cn:杨 博 / jp:楊 博).

I am a PhD candidate at Laboratoire d'informatique de Sorbonne Université (LIP6, Sorbonne University).

I love travelling, and this photo is taken at Amagiso Onsen in Izu, Japan.
Now I am learning cooking, which is becoming my new hobby:)

Research Activities

In my master's research, I focused on benchmarking and better use of near-term quantum devices, especially IBM Quantum devices.

For my PhD research, I am focusing on quantum error mitigation (QEM), and the integration of QEM and quantum verification in Prof. Elham Kashefi's team.

As for my long-term goal, I am looking for practical quantum architectures and high-level quantum programming languages.
