Academic Areas: The first-principles calculations and theory on the electronic structure, spin, electron, phonon etc. transport in magnetic nanostructures.
Jia Zhang received his Ph.D. degree in Institute of Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2012. Currently, he is an associate professor in the School of Physics, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Wuhan, China. My current research interest is focusing on the electronic structures, transport phenomenon (electron, phonon, spin etc.) in novel magnetic nanostructures for low power consumption spintronic applications.
