Brief introduction

    I got my PhD degree in physics from school of physics and astronomy, Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 2018. Then, I spent 4 years (2018-2022) as a postdoctoral researcher in Institut de Science et d’Ingénierie Supramoléculaires (ISIS) at University of Strasbourg, France, where I worked with Prof. Thomas W. Ebbesen. I joined School of Electronic Science and Engineering, Xi’an Jiaotong University as a distinguished research fellow (associate professor) in September 2022.

    My research interests lie in exploration of ultrafast nonlinear optical effects of various light-matter strongly coupled systems, and study the ultrafast dynamics of complex systems. I mainly focus on ultrafast modulation of optical fields, measurements of third-order optical nonlinear coefficients, spectroscopy and dynamics of light-matter hybrid systems via time-resolved optical spectroscopy and Z-scan techniques.

Scientific Research
