Dr. Zhong Wan joined Professor Xiangfeng Duan’s group in 2018. His research in the Duan group research involves fundamental transport property studies of high-quality heterojunctions with various materials and dimensionalities. “Zhong is a highly innovative and dedicated postdoctoral scholar who has made important contributions to condensed matter physics, materials science and nanotechnology,” Duan said. “He has elegantly joined his unique background in condense matter physics with our expertise in new material development, and is driving our research into totally new directions and new heights. His research transcends the traditional disciplinary boundaries across chemistry, materials science and condense matter physics, and opens exciting new opportunities in emerging quantum information science.” Zhong received his bachelor’s degree in physics from Jilin University, P.R. China (2011) and his Ph.D. in Physics and Astronomy from Purdue University (2018).
