Dr. Xudong Chen
I am currently an Associate Professor at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, National University of Singapore, Singapore. I received the Ph.D. degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA, USA, in 2005, where my research focus was mainly electromagnetic wave theories and applications. My current research interests are mainly inverse problems. In particular, I have rich experiences in reconstructing electromagnetic parameters of obscured targets that are probed by excitation waves that can be electromagnetic, acoustic, or elastic. I have published more than 80 journal papers on inverse-scattering problems, material parameter retrieval, and optical microscopy.
Dr. Makoto Hashimoto
I am currently an Associate Staff Scientist at Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource. I joined the Shen group as a postdoctoral scholar in 2008, after receiving my Ph.D at the University of Tokyo, Japan. My current research interest is to understand strongly-correlated electron systems, particularly high-temperature cuprate superconductors by mainly using angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES). I am also interested in the use and development of other spectroscopy techniques such as RIXS, time-resolved ARPES and spin-resolved ARPES.
Dr. Donghui Lu
I am currently a staff scientist at Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory. I graduated from Nanjing University with BS degree in Solid State Physics. I spent three years in Institute of Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, China and three years in Institute of Solid State Physics, Karlsruhe Research Center , Germany for my post-graduate studies. I received my Ph.D. degree in Condensed Matter Physics in 1997. My research interests are mainly focused on ARPES studies of strongly correlated electron systems.
Dr. Sung-Kwan Mo
I am a research scientist at the Advanced Light Source, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. I received my Ph. D. from University of Michigan in 2006, then worked as a postdoctoral fellow in Shen group before moving across the Bay in 2010. My scientific interest is to investigate electronic properties of advanced materials using ARPES, ranging from heavy fermions, topological insulators, low dimensional systems, to functional oxides for energy applications.
Dr. Rob Moore
My focus in experimental condensed matter physics involves understanding the surface properties of correlated electron systems. With properties as superconductivity, colossalmagnetoresistance, ferroelectricity, and enhanced catalytic reactions, the immense potential from both academic and technological points of view are evident. The surfaces of such systems offer a unique opportunity to not only investigate the intricate coupling degrees of freedom responsible for such exotic phases but an opportunity to search for new phases. The strive for nanoscale applications, where surface properties dominate, emphasizes the importance of interfaces and reduced dimensionality.
