Henry Yuen is a PhD student at MIT, studying theoretical computer science. His areas of research span quantum and classical complexity theory, communication complexity, and novel quantum cryptography. He is particularly interested in information theoretic techniques in these areas. Henry has recently worked on device independent randomness expansion, and is interested in other ways quantum mechanical behavior can be certified by classical beings. Other questions that keep him up at night include: are there cryptographic primitives that are unique to the quantum world? Does quantum mechanics always allow one to send short messages when communicating?
