Jianglai Liu obtained B. S. in Physics from Nanjing University in 1998. He received a Ph.D. degree in Physics in 2006 from the University of Maryland. He held a postdoctoral and then senior postdoctoral scholar position at Caltech from 2006 to 2010. He joined Shanghai Jiao Tong University as a distinguished research fellow in 2011 and became a full professor in 2016. He has worked on various experiments in the intersections of nuclear physics, particle physics, and astrophysics. He currently serves as the spokesperson of the PandaX experiment, a xenon-based direct dark matter search at the China Jin-Ping Underground Laboratory. He also has a strong involvement in the Daya Bay and JUNO experiments, studying the fundamental properties of neutrinos. In his early career, he studied the strange quark content of the nucleon at the Jefferson Lab via parity-violating electron scattering (G-zero, 1999-2006), and performed measurements of the axial-vector coupling constant of the nucleon using ultracold neutron decays at the Los Alamos National Laboratory (UCNA, 2006-2010). He received the best Ph.D. dissertation prize from the Jefferson Lab in 2006. He was awarded the Outstanding Junior Investigator from the National Natural Science Foundation of China in 2015. In 2019, he received the Wang Ganchang Prize from the Chinese Physics Society and the Xplorer Prize from the Tencent Foundation.
