Yunxi Jiang obtained her BSc degree in Applied Mathematics from Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU). She started her Ph.D. in December 2021. Yunxi’s current research focuses on topological spintronics, especially the dynamics of Magnetic Skyrmions, a topological spin texture that is promising to be the carrier for the next generation of information technology.
Abhinav Varma completed his BSc in Physics with Theoretical Physics at Imperial College London, and completed his MSc in Physics at University College London with a first-class distinction. He has carried out research projects at both the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, and the Bose Institute. Abhinav started his PhD in December 2021 with Assoc. Prof. Niels Gresnigt. He is predominantly looking at phenomenological aspects of beyond Standard Model theories based on Clifford and Jordan algebras.
Francesco Flammini Dotti
Francesco obtained his undergraduate degree in physics from Università Tor Vergata and his masters degree in astronomy from University of Padua, both in Italy. His current research focuses on the long-time dynamical evolution of the planetary system in star clusters, and on how such environments affect the orbital architecture of planetary systems.
After obtaining his degree in material science from Pennsylvania State University in 2017, Xiuming started his PhD studies at XJTLU. Xiuming’s research focuses on the dynamical evolution of supermassive black hole systems and their relation to gravitational-wave detections.
Kai is a graduate of the Department of Physics at Nankai University, with a strong interest in computational astrophysics. The objective of Kai’s PhD research is to numerically investigate the dynamics of planetary systems and their debris structures in dense stellar environments in and beyond the Milky Way galaxy.
Xueqi received her BSc degree in Applied Mathematics from Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU). Her main research interest is mathematical physics. In the autumn of 2020 she started her PhD research project on condensation phenomena in out-of-equilibrium systems at the Department of Physics at XJTLU.
Liam obtained his undergraduate degree and master’s degree in physics from the University of Oxford. He started his PhD under the supervision of Dr. Niels Gresnigt in June 2021. His current research focuses on the applications of division and Clifford algebras to (beyond) Standard Model physics.
Shujun completed his BSc in Materials Science and Engineering at China University of Geosciences (Wuhan) and his MSc by Research at Cranfield University, UK. Shujun joined XJTLU in 2022 for his PhD studies and his current research focuses on the construction and performance of electrode-electrolyte interfaces for high-voltage lithium metal batteries, which will open up new possibilities for next-generation energy storage devices.
