Research Areas
“Topological superconductors/Majorana fermions/Topological quantum computation;”
“Topological excitations/Topological materials/Anomalous transport;”

Mainly focus on the studies of the topological excitations along with their fascinating transport behaviors in various topological systems, including the Majorana bound states/Andreev bound states/quasi-Majorana modes in the topological superconducting systems, linear/nonlinear anomalous electrical/thermal/thermoelectric transport effects in Weyl/Dirac semimetals/topological insulators/Ferromagnets/Antiferromagnets, etc.

Project Highlights
Have totally contributed 18 articles so far (mainly from 2017 to 2023) to the field, among which, in 10 papers (i.e., 1 PRL, 1 PRR, and 8 PRB) I am the first author/co-author/corresponding author.
More specifically, the proposed work of using cold atom Hubbard-Hofstadter lattice to realize higher-order topological superconductivity and Majorana corner modes has been published in Phys. Rev. Lett. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 123, 060402 (2019)], and the co-authored paper on ps-ABS (quasi-Majorana) is now highly cited in the field [Phys. Rev. B 98, 155314 (2018)].

Projects and Funding
So far, I have received several research funding projects including the Doctoral Thesis Completing Grant (2019-2020) from Clemson University, the National Natural Science Foundation of China (2022-2024), and the China Postdoctoral Science Foundation (2020-2022). I simultaneously participate in two other Key programs from NSFC.
