Hello ~ I’m Haimeng Zhao /haɪ məŋ dʒaʊ/ (赵海萌), a PhD student in Physics at Caltech. I’m deeply fascinated by how the universe works and how we can possibly understand it. So I started working in the intersection of Physics and Artificial Intelligence.

In particular, I’m interested in the foundation, applications and interplay of quantum many-body physics, information theory and high-dimensional statistics. I strive to understand scientific discovery as a quantum process and exploit its quantum nature to facilitate discoveries.

Before Caltech, I received my Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics and Physics with Honours from Tsinghua University. I was an undergrad research fellow in John Preskill’s group at IQIM, Caltech and an exchange student in Giuseppe Carleo’s group at EPFL in Switzerland. At Tsinghua, I worked on quantum information in Dong-Ling Deng’s group at IIIS and AI for Astronomy with Wei Zhu.
