Research interests

I am a theoretical scientist focusing on the topic of magnetic properties on 2D curved nanomembrane and 3D heterostructure. Such materials are key building blocks for developing spintronics. They exhibit novel properties due to the nonplanar geometry on nanomembrane and interfaces in heterostructure. My research skills are analytical method and first principle calculation. My research goal is to find out a very clear physical picture to assist people in controlling and engineering the desirable magnetic and transport properties on these novel materials.

My studies focus on:

Nanomagnetism, Magnetoresistance, Magnetoanisotropy, Quantum Dynamics of Nanoarchitecture, Spin orbital coupling, Spin Hall effect, Topological Insulator
