Brief Intro of the Speaker:
Prof. Shun-Qing Shen received his PhD degree in theoretical physics from Fudan University in Shanghai. He was a postdoctoral fellow (1992 – 1995) in China Center of Advanced Science and Technology (CCAST), Beijing, Alexander von Humboldt fellow (1995 – 1997) in Max Planck Institute for Physics of Complex Systems, Dresden, Germany, and JSPS research fellow (1997) in Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan. He has been working in the Department of Physics, The University of Hong Kong since December 1997. Prof. Shen is an expert in the field of condensed matter physics, and is distinguished for his research works on topological insulator, spintronics of semiconductors, quantum magnetism and orbital physics in transition metal oxides, and novel quantum states of condensed matters. He was awarded Croucher Senior Research Fellowship (Croucher Prize) in 2010, and published his famous book Topological Insulators in 2012.
