Jin Zhang

Hello. I'm doing a full time PhD study in condensed matter theory at  the University of Warwick. My supervisors are Dr. Nick d'Ambrumenil and Dr. Boris Muzykantskii. Before I came to Warwick, I received a MSc in condensed matter physics and a BSc in physics. Both were done at Peking University in Beijing, China.

My research interests mainly lie in these areas: transport in and out of equilibrium; counting statistics; first principle methods/density functional theory and new material investigation/design. Relevant publications can be found on the left or here. To be more specific, I have worked on

  • Non-equilibrium Fermi-edge singularity in tunnel junctions
  • Full counting statistics for fermionic system
  • Charge/Spin transport on mesoscopic/molecular scale
  • Electron-phonon interaction induced transport correction in low dimension
  • Density functional theory and numerics

My current research focuses on the 1st and the 2nd item. Besides conducting research, I also do undergraduate teaching -- example class of 'maths for scientists' for 3 years.

During the course of PhD study, I visited many interesting cities, well, in the name of 'science'. I learned a lot from the conference participants coming from all over the world, both in and out of physics. There is nothing of more fun than travelling to a new city & meeting with new people, who, "accidentally" have the same taste as I do. Needless to say, I LOVE being a physicist.

UPDATE: Though I still love studying physics, the tough side of life forced me to compromise --- Now I'm officially a physics doctor working in the chemistry department of UCLA (while still studying physics, to a large extent).  You may find me and my new colleagues here (since Oct, 2010).
