Profile

I am a theoretical condensed matter physicist at the Physics Department and Zhejiang Institute of Modern Physics, Zhejiang University. My current research concerns the superfluidity and other physical properties of ultracold fermionic atoms in traps, as well as strongly correlated electron systems, e.g., high Tc  and iron based superconductors.

I obtained my B.S. degree from the University of Science and Technology of China in 1992. In 1995, I earned my M.S. degree in physics at the Institute of Physics, the Chinese Academy of Sciences, in Beijing. I completed my Ph.D research in Professor Kathryn Levin's group in the James Franck Institute and the Department of Physics at the University of Chicago in 2000. Then I spent two years as a postdoctoral research associate at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory in Tallahassee, Florida, under the supervision of (Nobel Laureate) Professor J.R. Schrieffer, and two years as a postdoctoral research fellow in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland, under the supervision of Professor Zlatko Tesanovic. In 2004, I returned to the University of Chicago and started my research in atomic Fermi gases. In 2008, I joined the faculty of Zhejiang University, and was elected Changjiang Professor by the Ministry of Education of China in 2009.

Research work

Theoretical condensed matter physics and cold atom physics. To be more specific, currently, my work concerns mainly superfluidity and other physical properties of ultracold atomic Fermi gases in traps, and high Tc superconductivity, quantum critical phenomena, as well as strongly correlated electron systems in general.
