Yusui Chen has been a tenure-track assistant professor of physics at New York Institute of Technology since fall 2018. He received his Ph.D. in physics from the Stevens Institute of Technology in 2015 and his B.S. in physics from Nanjing University in 2005.

Chen's research focus centers on quantum information science and engineering, with distinct expertise in theoretical modeling and simulation of complex quantum systems, with an emphasis on non-equilibrium processes. Moreover, he and his collaborators have developed a master equation methodology to study the dynamics of entanglement and decoherence within multi-qubit systems, particularly in the presence of environmental noise. This study harnesses a synergy of classical computing and quantum simulation techniques. Furthermore, he has conducted comprehensive exploration into the utilization of entanglement to propel advancements in quantum metrology.
