Weilong Wang received his B.S. in Physics from Peking University in 2011 and his M.Sc. in Communication and Information System from National Digital Switching System Engineering & Technology Research Center (NDSC) in 2014, respectively. Then he became a PhD student at NDSC in 2014. Since 2015 he is a PhD student at the department of Signal Theory and Communications at University of Vigo. His current research interest is quantum cryptography, particularly quantum key distribution.
