Hieu received his B.S. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2022, where he worked with Prof. Yogesh Surendranath. Hieu joined the Lee group in December of 2022 and is currently working on a project critically assessing the practicality of the variational quantum eigensolver (VQE) approach.
Adrian grew up in Santa Barbara, California, and completed his undergrad at Caltech in physics in the Spring of 2022. Adrian joined the Lee group as a QSE student after his rotation in April 2023 and is now working on characterizing the boundary of quantum advantage with quantum-classical quantum Monte Carlo (QC-QMC) and other classical applications of Auxiliary Field Quantum Monte Carlo (AFQMC).
Felix worked under Prof. Dvira Segal at the University of Toronto on beyond-perturbative quantum master equations and on understanding nontrivial quantum effects; and with Prof. Birgitta Whaley at UC Berkeley on pseudo-hermitian open quantum systems. In the Lee group, Felix is working on developing numerically exact quantum dynamics methods.
Zeyu obtained his Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania, working with Professors Joseph Subotnik and Abraham Nitzan. He studied polaritons and semiclassical simulations of them during his Ph.D. In the Lee group, Zeyu is working on understanding various approximations for polaron transport in solids.
Tong finished his Ph.D. at Tsinghua University, working with Prof. Zhigang Shuai. In his Ph.D., he developed and applied density matrix renormalization group approaches to model exciton-phonon problems. He is joining the Lee group to broaden his numerical expertise to electron correlation methods.
PJ finished his Ph.D. at Columbia University, working with Prof. David Reichman. In his Ph.D., he developed and applied self-consistent cumulant Green's function approaches to model electron-phonon problems. He also formulated a wavefunction method for describing polarons in an ab initio set-up. He is joining the Lee group to develop and apply periodic quantum chemistry methods to electrocatalysis problems.
Adam finished his Ph.D. at the University of California, Berkeley, under the guidance of Prof. Martin Head-Gordon. In his Ph.D., he has made numerous contributions to quantum chemistry, including the fast algorithms for exact exchange under periodic boundary conditions. He is the lead developer of Q-Chem's periodic boundary condition codebase (qcpbc) and will oversee the future development of qcpbc in the Lee group. He will also work on the development of quantum computing algorithms relevant to biological applications.
Jinghong finished his undergraduate at Peking University under the supervision of Prof. Hong Jiang, where he worked on the application of Dynamical Mean Field Theory (DMFT). He is now a rotation student in the Lee group, and he is currently working on some variations of the Auxiliary Field Quantum Monte Carlo (AFQMC) method.
Aadithya completed his undergraduate degree in chemistry at the University of Oxford, where he worked with Prof. Artur Izmaylov (University of Toronto) on measurement in quantum computing. Following this, Aadithya completed a master’s project on spin-coupling effects in strongly correlated systems with Prof. David Tew. In the Lee group, Aadithya works on embedding approaches for condensed phase systems.
Anton received his B.S. in Chemistry and Math from MIT in 2023, where he did research under Prof. Stephen Buchwald. In the Lee group, Anton is working on methods to model systems in heterogeneous electrocatalysis.
