Haitan Xu received his Ph.D. degree from University of Maryland-College Park in 2014, and B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees from Zhejiang University in 2007 and 2009. Then he worked as a postdoc at Yale University and Harvard University, and Research Fellow at Peking University. In 2020 he joined SUSTech as a Research Fellow and Associate Professor. He is both an experimentalist and a theorist, with research experience in multiple fields including topological and quantum optomechanics, quantum computation and precision measurement. His representative achievements include: topological energy transfer by encircling an exceptional point, nonreciprocal phonon transfer, optomechanical buckling transitions, and construction of topological qubits and quantum gates (especially the Toffoli gate) for topological quantum computation.
