Academic Areas: Charge transport in organic conductors and 2D material heterostructures
Research Interests: Insulator-metal transitions, Anderson localization, superconductivity and charge density waves
Education and Professional Experience:
I was born in Wuhan in 1982 and got my bachelor’s degree from Huazhong University of Science and Technology in 2005. Then I obtained my Ph.D. degree in experimental condensed matter physics in 2010 from University of Minnesota. I joined the department of chemical engineering and materials science at University of Minnesota as a postdoctoral researcher afterwards. In 2013, I started working in Shanghai Jiao Tong University as an assistant professor. I joined Huazhong University of Science and Technology in 2016 as a professor.
My research focuses on charge transport in organic conductors and 2D material heterostructures. In recent years, we have successfully fabricated organic semiconductor transistors with high mobility using vacuum and ionic liquids as gate dielectrics. We have also fabricated devices with 2D materials such as TaS2, NbS2 and NbSe2. The physics problems I am interested in are insulator-metal transitions, Anderson localization, superconductivity and charge density waves. I am also interested in exploring the applications of such devices in electrical engineering and biomedical engineering.
