Professor Department of Physics

My research field is theoretical condensed matter physics, in particular, electronic and quantum transport properties of mesoscopic systems, topological states of matter, and spintronics. My recent interest is applying quantum field theoretical methods to study the electronic transport and quantum phases in new materials. For example, topological insulator/semimetal/superconductor, 2D layered materials, weak (anti-)localization, the quantum anomalous/spin Hall effect, etc. My theoretical works are usually motivated by experiments, and several of them have been verified and applied to relevant experiments.
