 I Graduated from SunYet-Sen University in 1999 and got my Ph. D from the University of Tokyo in 2006. After four years’ work as postdoctoral fellow and later as young scientistfellow at National Institute of Materials Science (NIMS) till 2010, I moved to Shanghai Jiao Tong University as distinguished research fellow and became tenured professor in 2015.

Research Interests:
1. MBE growth of various fascinatingultra-thin films on crystal surfaces
2. Conventional and unconventional thin film superconductors
3. Topological phases of thin films
