Research Interests:

Dr. Wu was an undergraduate student at University of Science and Technology of China from 2005.08 to 2009.07. He obtained his Ph.D. degree from The Pennsylvania State University in 2014.08. He was a postdoc in the theory group of Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics between 2014.08 and 2017.07. He joined Huazhong University of Science and Technology in 2017.08. His main research areas include topological phases, quantum gases, and quantum optics.
