We aim to understand the beauty of physics in realistic materials by performing ab initio materials simulations and developing new methods to reveal novel phenomena. By the materials design, we aim to bridge the fundamental theory and experimental measurement. Our recent research is focused on the design and prediction of exotic topological materials, for exmaple, topological insulators, topological Dirac and Weyl semimetals.

Bright and energetic M.Sc and  PhD students and Postdocs are always welcome.
