I am a Nevile Research Fellow at Magdalene College Cambridge, a position that allows me to start my independent academic career. I am also a fourth-year PhD student in the Cavendish Laboratory of the University of Cambridge, working on the topological aspects of vibrational properties of solids, especially non-Abelian braiding of phonons, which has the potential to form the basis for quantum computation. I obtained my MSc and BSc in Fudan University (China), where I explored different research topics in computational condensed matter physics. I have received tremendous recognition including the Cavendish Prize in Computational Physics (awarded to one PhD student each year by the Head of Department), Cutting-edge Research in Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting, 15th Daheng Wang Award in Optics (Highest honour for Chinese students in optics), and Committee of 100 (US) Leadership Scholarship. I played Werner Heisenberg in the Play Copenhagen at Cambridge.
