Yuan Xin

Assistant professor

Research Fields: Theoretical Physics
Office No.:


Yuan obtained Ph. D. degree at Boston University with Liam Fitzpatrick. After that he worked at Yale University and Carnegie Mellon University as postdoctoral fellow. Yuan’s research focuses on novel non-perturbative methods in quantum field theory and quantum many-body physics and applications in understanding phenomena such as criticality, symmetry breaking/emergence, and confinement. Recently his work involves using bootstrap, Hamiltonian truncation, and DMRG to study low dimension quantum systems.
