Hao Chu joined the School fo Physics and Astronomy of Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 2021. His research primarily focuses on uncovering symmetry breaking and exotic collective excitations of correlated materials as well as optical engineering of novel phases of matter, all using ultrafast and nonlinear spectroscopy methods. He is currently investigating high-Tc superconductors and low-dimensional materials. His results have been published in Nature, Nature Materials, Nature Physics, Nature Communications and Physical Review Letters.
