We are excited to announce that Prof. Di Xiao will be joining our faculty in September 2021.
Di is a renowned theorist in the field of quantum materials. In particular, he pioneered the fields of quantum valleytronics, two-dimensional (2D) van der Waals magnets, and the application of novel Berry phase effects in 2D quantum materials. Di is a prestigious Simons Fellow and his work is very highly cited (over 30,000 citations), earning him the honor of being named a Thomson Reuters Highly Cited Researcher every year since 2017, a distinction only the top 1% of people in the field have.
