Ph.D., 2006, Columbia University
B.S., 2000, Peking University


My area of research is experimental condensed matter physics. I am interested in the electronic properties of low dimensional materials including graphene. Specifically, I study the electron transport through those materials at low temperatures and high magnetic fields, and learn about their quantum behavior. I also use scanning probe microscopes (scanning tunneling microscope and atomic force microscope) to probe the structural and electronic properites of the low dimensional materials at atomic scale.
