Bei Zeng is a mathematical physicist working on quantum information theory and many-body physics.

Her research also seeks ways to reliably transmit and process quantum information. She also combines knowledge from math, physics, information theory and computer science to design quantum error-correction codes that reduce the faults caused by decoherence in quantum systems. These approaches could provide ways to build practical quantum computers.
