I am a tenure-track assistant professor in the physics school of Peking University in Beijing, China. Before joining Peking University I was a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Maryland, College Park working with Prof. Chris Jarzynski from Sep. 2010 to Dec. 2012 and at Los Alamos National Laboratry working with Dr. Wojciech H. Zurek from Sep. 2007 to Sep. 2010. Prior to that, I did my PhD with Prof. Chang-Pu Sun at the Institute of Theoretical Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences. My research focuses on several fields of theoretical physics. Specifically, I work on a wide range of problems at the boundary between quantum information science and statistical mechanics. The specific topics include quantum thermodynamics, the interplay between physics and information theory, and quantum phase transitions in quantum many-body systems.
