Hanmeng (Harmony) Zhan

I am an Assistant Professor in the Computer Science Department at Worcester Polytechnic Institute.

I obtained my Ph.D. in the Department of Combinatorics and Optimization at the University of Waterloo, supervised by Chris Godsil. We wrote a book on Discrete Quantum Walks on Graphs and Digraphs:


I was a postdoc fellow with Bojan Mohar in the Department of Mathematics at Simon Fraser University; a York Science Fellow with Ada Chan in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at York University; and a postdoc fellow with Luc Vinet in the Centre de Recherches Mathématiques at the Université de Montréal.

I am interested in algebraic graph theory, with applications to quantum information and quantum computation. More specific areas include graph spectra, continuous-time and discrete-time quantum walks, equiangular lines, association schemes, covering graphs, and graph embeddings.

Here is my CV.
