Professional Experience

I obtained a doctorate in material physics and chemistry from Tianjin University in July 2002,. Now I teaches in the Department of physics of the school of science of Beijing Jiaotong University, focusing on "College Physics" and "College Physics Experiment". I am mainly engaged in the first principle calculation of the structure, properties and applications of low dimensional nanostructures and their assembly materials.

Research Field

Atomic Clusters: Equilibrium geometries, electronic structure, magnetism and energetics of neutral and charged clusters, compound clusters and cluster assemblies.

Teaching Courses

Collage Physics; College Physics Experiment.
