Shuoying Yang
Assistant Professor

Brief Introduction

Shuoying Yang received her Bachelor’s degree from Bryn Mawr College in 2014 and her Master’s degree from Columbia University in 2016. In 2020, she obtained her Ph.D. in condensed matter physics from the Max Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics in Germany. Subsequently, she moved to Spain and conducted postdoctoral research at the Institute of Photonic Sciences (ICFO) and the Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICN2). Since November 2023, she has joined the Department of Physics at the Southern University of Science and Technology as an assistant professor.

Yang’s lab applies advanced nanofabrication and low-temperature quantum transport techniques to study emergent quantum phenomena in low-dimensional quantum materials and their associated heterostructures. Her current interests involve around topological quantum states of matter, magnetism, unconventional superconductivity, and the interactions among them. By utilizing various forms of van der Waals materials, stacking order, and novel designs, her group engineers and probes exotic quantum states of matter, driven by both their fundamental scientific interests and potential for advanced electronics applications.
