Wen Yu graduated from Nanyang Technological University with a BSc (Honours) in Physics. During his undergraduate studies, he spent 8 months at Rice University working on cold atoms and molecules theory, leading to his work on two-frequency photoassociation spectroscopy of weakly bound molecules. Wen Yu is currently a doctoral student at the National University of Singapore, working on quantum communication and devices. Through his research, he hopes to use the principles of quantum theory to make digital communication more secure in a world more ever reliant on digital technology.
