 Educational Background/Employment:
  • B.Sc. (2007) Department of Physics, University of Science and Technology of China, P. R. China
  • Ph.D. (2012) Department of Physics, University of Science and Technology of China, P. R. China
  • Employment:
    • Postdoctoral Fellow (2016-present), T-4 and CNLS, Los Alamos National Lab, USA
    • Postdoctoral Research Associate (2016), Department of Physics, California State University Northridge, USA
    • Visiting Scholoar (2015), Physics Department, Princeton University, USA
    • Postdoctoral Research Associate (2012-2014), Department of Physics, California State University Northridge, USA

Research Interests:

  • Topological states of matter in strongly correlated systems: Topological orders and fractional excitations on geometrically frustrated lattices, fractional quantum Hall effects, and the applications of quantum information concepts to quantum many-body systems
  • Novel phases, emergent phenomena and collective states of matter in strongly-correlated systems and quantum materials, especially focusing on the interplay between Coulomb interaction, spin exchange interaction and orbital, spin, charge degrees of freedom
  • Mesoscopic phenomena in two-dimensional materials: Electronic structure, quantum transport properties and quantum hall effects, especially the role of the extrinsic (intrinsic) disorder, electron-electron interactions and the interplay of interactions and disorder
  • Developing the state-of-the-art numerical methods and applying them to real materials
