Name and title:
Chaoming Jian, Assistant Professor, Physics
Theoretical condensed matter physics
Current research project:
Currently, I am trying to develop and apply new theoretical tools to investigate the properties of quantum matters that are highly entangled and strongly interacting. In particular, I am trying to combine the ideas from condensed matter physics, high energy physics, quantum information and mathematics to study quantum systems that exhibit exotic topological properties and fractionalizations.
