Yuanbo Zhang is a condensed matter physicist and a professor of physics at Fudan University. He is known for his work on the electronic properties of low-dimensional systems.[1]

Education and Career[edit]

He studied physics at Peking University and earned his bachelor's degree in 2000, and a doctorate at Columbia University in 2006 under the supervision of Philip Kim, they work on graphene almost at the same time with Geim and Novoselov.[2][3] Zhang worked at the University of California, Berkeley as a Miller Research Fellow until 2009,[4] when he joined the faculty at Fudan University. He joined the faculty at Fudan University in 2009.[5]

Awards and Honours[edit]

Zhang won the IUPAP(International Union of Pure and Applied Physics) Young Scientist Prize (C8), in 2010.[6] He was awarded the second Nishina Asia award for "his outstanding contributions to the elucidation of electronic properties of monolayer and bilayer graphene."[7]
