Brief Introduction
Dr. Liusuo Wu received his B.S. in material physics from the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) in 2006, and his Ph.D. in physics from Stony Brook University in 2013. He joined Southern University of Science and Technology as an associate professor in 2018.

 

Research Interests
Dr. Wu’s research is mainly about quantum phase transition and related quantum critical behaviors in magnetic systems, including heavy fermions, low dimensional quantum magnet, spin frustrated systems and quantum spin liquid. Recent work was focusing on investigating the quantum spin excitations with neutron scattering technique.
