Visiting senior scientist at Kavli IPMU

I started my undergraduate training in 1999 at the physics program of SCGY from University of Science and Technology of China , Hefei.

I went to study at the Department of Mathematics at Harvard University in 2006 and earned my PhD degree in 2011.

I spent a year as a postdoctoral researcher at Northwestern University , and then became an assistant professor at Boston University in 2012.

In 2014, I joined Tsinghua University as a faculty member of Department of Mathematical Sciences and Yau Mathematical Sciences Center.

I work in the field of mathematical physics and am interested in algebraic and geometric aspects of quantum field theory and string theory. Some aspects of current interest include

- Algebraic/complex geometry: Calabi-Yau geometry, singularity/Landau-Ginzburg theory, moduli problem, mirror symmetry
- Quantum field theory and string theory: renormalization theory, topological string, supersymmetric gauge theory, supergravity.

There are two weekly mathematical physics seminars in YMSC.

- I am organizing the weekly Geometry and Physics Seminar (GPS): 2018 Fall , 2018 Spring , 2017 , 2016 Fall , 2016 Spring , 2015 Fall
- There is also the AdS, duality and Strings (ADS) seminar (2018 Fall).
