Dr Ye Jun

Dr YE Jun is currently working as a senior scientist at the Institute of High Performance Computing (IHPC), A*STAR, Singapore. He obtained his bachelor's degree (2007) from the Central South University, China, and PhD (2012) from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. He has a background in theoretical chemical physics, focusing on numerical simulations of quantum dynamics, quantum transport and ultrafast optical spectroscopy in molecular aggregates, complexes, and organic semiconductors. He also has extensive experience in HPC simulation of organic materials systems at different scales, focusing on polymers and molecular crystals. He's currently leading a team of ~20 research scientists and engineers with diverse backgrounds in building up the quantum computing capabilities in IHPC. His current research in quantum computing focuses on developing end-to-end hardware-agnostic full-stack quantum-accelerated solutions for simulation and optimisation use cases.
