Dr. Bing Qi received his B.A. in Physics from Nanjing University in 1990, and Ph.D. in Optical Instrument from Dalian University of Technology in 1996. Currently, he is a senior research associate in the Dept. of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Toronto, Canada.
Dr. Qi has been working on practical quantum cryptography since 2003. He made important contributions to the first experimental implementation of the decoy state quantum key distribution (QKD) protocol and the design and implementation of time-shift attack, which is the first successful attack against a commercial QKD system. His current research interests include measurement device independent QKD (MDIQKD), continuous variable QKD through existing fiber optic network, QKD based on energy-time uncertainty principle, high rate random number generation from quantum phase noise of a laser, etc.
