Research Interests: His main research involves high-temperature superconductors (HTSC), colossal magnetoresistance (CMR), spintronic and multiferroic physics etc. He had successfully hosted a national 973 project (Group Leader), five projects from the National Natural Science Foundation, a foundation for“cross-century talents”from the Ministry of Education. In 2005 and 2007, he was awarded the second prize in natural science by the Ministry of Education and Hubei Province, respectively. He has nine authorized patents, published more than 300 SCI papers in international journals.
During the period from 1989 to 1998, he worked at Institute of Plasma Physics, the Chinese Academy of Sciences. He was specially appointed as an Associate Professor in 1991 and Professor in 1995 by the Chinese Academy of Sciences. He visited in University of Tokyo, Japan, as a visiting professor (December, 1991 –April, 1994) and JSPS senior visiting scholar (December, 1997- March, 1998).In September 1998, Prof. Yuan was introduced to Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST) as a talent and successively became the first level of HUST "113" Talent Project and the Distinguished Professor in HUST, “cross-century”talent of the Ministry of Education, evaluation expert of National Science and Technology Awards, and executive member of the council in the 1st National institute of solid physics of colleges and universities. In 2007 and 2011, he was appointed as a second-level professor and a special professor for the Huazhong Scholars, respectively.
