Miller Fellow, UC Berkeley
Xie Chen received her PhD in Physics from MIT in 2012. Her main research interest lies in combining ideas from quantum information theory, where entanglement is extensively studied, with condensed matter physics to establish a theory for many-body entanglement. Such a theory would lead to the discovery of new strongly correlated quantum phases in condensed matter systems, a systematic understanding of them and the identification of experimental systems where they can be realized.
Xie Chen is currently a Fellow at the Miller Institute at UC Berkeley.
