Research Interest: Theoretical Nuclear Physics, Nuclear Astrophysics, Strongly Correlated Many-Body Theory, Scientific Computation

Professor Sun received his Ph.D. in theoretical physics in 1991 from Technical University of Munich, Germany. He is currently a distinguished professorof and co-director of the Center for Nuclear Astrophysics. His specific research interests are, but not limited to, nuclear many-body theory, structure of exotic nuclei, property and application of nuclear isomers, nucleosynthesis in explosive stellar objects, weak interaction in nuclei and neutrino physics, strongly correlated many-electron systems, and quantum phase transition. He has published more than 250 peer-reviewed papers, including those published in Nature, Nature Physics, and Physical Review Letters. Professor Sun also serves as a member of scientific advisory committee of Heavy-Ion Research Facility in Lanzhou, is guest professor of Institute of Modern Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, guest professor of China Institute of Atomic Energy, and co-editor of Chinese Science Bulletin.
