This photo was taken in the office where I did my graduate study. I was with the scratch papers, lecture notes, and printed references that I had used during the five years.

Quick introduction

I'm a theoretical physicist interested in topological phenomena. Most of my works focus on strongly-correlated condensed matter systems, but I'm also interested in high-energy physics and mathematical physics. I like to do aerial silks and enjoy solving all sorts of puzzles.

  • Beginning 2022 Fall: postdoc, Harvard University.

  • 2019-2022: postdoc, Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics, University of California, Santa Barbara.

  • 2014-2019: Ph.D. in physics, University of Utah.

  • 2010-2014: B.S. in Economics, Fudan University.
