Professor, Institute for Advanced Study, Tsinghua University


As a condensed matter theorist, I am mainly interested in identifying, characterizing, and classifying new states of matter. My research is currently focused on quantum systems where strong correlation effect or topological character plays an important role in understanding their low energy and long wave-length physics. These kinds of quantum systems include quantum spin liquids, high temperature superconductors, quantum Hall systems, topological insulators and superconductors.

In August of 2012, I
moved to the Institute for Advanced Study at Tsinghua University in Beijing as a faculty member. Since December of 2017, I have been a Professor of Institute for Advanced Study at Tsinghua University.  Here is my website at Tsinghua University.
