YANG Bing Associate Professor


personal profile

Bing Yang, Associate Professor in SUSTech. He studied physics in Harbin, China, where he got his bachelor’s degree in 2009. Moving to Hefei, he started his PhD at the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC). In 2012, he joined the Ruprecht-Karls-University in Heidelberg and worked with ultracold atoms in optical lattices. After receiving his doctorate in 2015, he continued studying the strongly correlated quantum gases in optical lattices as a post-doctoral fellow. In 2020, he moved to the University of Innsbruck where he studied ultracold highly magnetic atoms. His research interests mainly focus on quantum many-body physics, ultracold-atom-based quantum simulation and quantum computation.
