- Fellowship in 2002 at the California Institute of Technology
Dr Debbie Leung obtained her B.S. in both Physics and Mathematics from Caltech in 1995, and her PhD in
Physics at Stanford under the supervision of Professor Yoshihisa
Yamamoto and Professor Isaac Chuang. She continued her research in quantum information theory in the
Physics of Information group at the IBM TJ Watson Research Center,
2000-2002, followed by a brief stay at the Mathematical
Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley. She was a Tolman postdoctoral fellow
at the Institute of Quantum Information, California Institute of
Technology (Caltech) and a recipient of the Croucher Foundation Fellowship 2002-2005. She has been a faculty member in the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) and the
Department of Combinatorics and Optimization at the University of
Waterloo since 2005.
Leung is currently focusing on quantum channel capacities, quantum network coding, and how entanglement (or the lack of) affecting quantum information processing. She also occasionally ponders over time travel.
In December 2015, Leung was featured in a Croucher news article - read here.
