Bowen Chen, Ph.D.


Bowen Chen is a postdoc in the QIQG group at the University of Warsaw. Before coming here, he spent ten years at Tsinghua University, first in the Department of Physics (B.Sc.) and then at the Institute for Advanced Study (Ph.D.), supervised by Professor Bartek Czech. Bowen’s research concerns how information changes our understanding of fundamental physics. Holography provides a natural playground for him to demystify the structure of bulk spacetime via boundary quantum information concepts. Currently, Bowen is interested in understanding the entanglement and complexity patterns in quantum field theories and quantum gravity, with the aid of modular theory and graph theory. He also works on the gauge theory formalism of measurement-based quantum computation.
