Wen Huang
Associate Researcher

Dr. Wen Huang is an associate researcher (PI) at the Institute for Quantum Science and Engineering. He obtained a bachelor’s degree from South China University of Technology in 2009, and then studied at Simon Fraser University in Canada and earned a MSc degree in experimental condensed matter physics in 2011. After that, he switched to theoretical condensed matter physics at McMaster University and obtained his PhD in 2016. Before joining SUSTech, he was a postdoc at the Institute for Advanced Study at Tsinghua University from 2016 to 2019. His research interests center around the field of condensed matter physics, with a focus on topological phases of matter, unconventional superconductivity and quantum many-body physics.
