Brief Biographical Sketch:

I became to Stanford for a PhD in Applied Physics after getting a B.S. in Physics from Peking University in Beijing, China. During my PhD I used nanoscale microwave imaging to uncover interesting physics at boundaries and interfaces in quantum materials. I graduated in 2016 and am now a postdoc working on the interaction between light and low-dimensional materials. I have a broad interest in science and am fascinated about marine biology, quantum information and machine learning. Outside research I love backpacking, fishing, playing computer games and listening to movie soundtracks.

C5638: From Radio Waves to Gamma Rays: the Electromagnetic Spectrum in Splash Spring 2017 (Apr. 22 - 23, 2017)
Are diverse phenomena ranging from radio waves to visible light to Gamma rays really the same physical process? Why do they interact so differently with matter? In this class I will give a broad survey across the entire electromagnetic spectrum, with a focus on connections to everyday life.
