Xiao Yan Xu received his PhD degree in theoretical physics from Institute of Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2017. From 2017 to 2019, he worked as Postdoctoral Researcher in Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, and from 2019 to 2021, he is Postdoctoral Researcher in UC San Diego. In 2021, he will join Shanghai Jiao Tong University as a tenure-track Associate Professor and PI. His current research interest is the quantum theory and computation of strongly correlated systems, especially exotic quantum phases and quantum phase transitions.
Novel phases and phase transitions in strongly correlated condensed matter systems
Developing quantum many-body computation methods
Intersection between condensed matter physics, machine learning, quantum information, and ultracold atom physics
