Dr Shengnan Zhang is leading the long range interaction project of the group. He joined the research group in September 2018. His research interests are focused on the strongly correlated many-body physics and Bose Einstein condensation. Currently, he is working on the experiment of long range interaction of 3P0-3D1 of cold Sr atoms confined in the optical lattice in Mott insulator.
PhD in Physics, Peking University, 2018
