KIC Postdoctoral Fellows
Dr. Shuolong Yang, PhD Stanford University (Applied Physics)
Shuolong’s research will focus on engineering quantum materials at an atomic scale, and probing their electronic properties. He is specifically interested in realizing novel superconducting states at material interfaces. Prof. Kyle Shen (Physics) and Prof. Darrell Schlom (Materials Science & Engineering) are Shuolong’s faculty sponsors.
Dr. Zeb Rocklin, PhD University of Michigan (Theory/Materials)
Zeb Rocklin is a Bethe/KIC Fellow in Theoretical Physics. His research will focus on how materials respond to mechanical stress and deformation, and in particular, the involvement of topological states and critical behavior. Professor Jim Sethna (Physics), is David’s faculty sponsor.
Dr. Menyoung Lee, PhD Stanford University (Experimental Condensed Matter Physics)
Menyoung’s research will focus on novel two-dimensional electron systems, and will explore their interactions with the environment and with each other. Professor Paul McEuen (Physics) is Menyoung’s faculty sponsor.
Dr. Marcos Guimaraes, University of Groningen, The Netherlands (Materials)
Dr. Marc Miskin, University of Chicago (Experimental Physics-Materials)
Marc’s research will focus on self-folding membranes based on 2D materials, ultimately building folded nanomachines that operate autonomously. His faculty sponsors are Professors Itai Cohen and Paul McEuen (Physics).
Dr. Lei Wang, PhD Columbia University (Physics)
Lei’s research will explore the electronic transport properties and optical response and 2D layered material heterostructures. Professor Paul McEuen (Physics), Professor Jiwoong Park (Chemistry) and Professor Farhan Rana (Engineering) are Lei’s faculty sponsors.
Dr. Long Ju, PhD University of California, Berkeley (Physics)
Long’s research will combine optical and electrical measurement techniques to explore the Valley Hall effect in bilayer graphene. Professors Paul McEuen, Dan Ralph (Physics) and Jiwoong Park (Chemistry) are Long’s faculty sponsors.
