Professor of Physics, Peking University


Ying Jiang, Professor of Physics, Peking University. Ying Jiang was born in July 1982 at Leshan, Sichuan province of China. Ying Jiang received his Bachelor’s degree from Beijing Normal University in 2003 and his PhD from Institute of Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) in 2008. He has been a visiting scientist in Forschungszentrum Jülich GmbH in Germany (2006-2007). After working as a Postdoctoral Associate in University of California, Irvine (2008-2010), he joined International Center for Quantum Materials, Peking University as a tenure-track assistant professor. He was promoted to associate professor with tenure in 2016 and full professor in 2018. 

Ying Jiang's research field is condensed matter physics. He is an expert in advanced scanning probe microscopy/spectroscopy and focused on the atomic-scale properties and ultrafast dynamics in single molecules and low-dimensional materials. In recent years, he has made major accomplishments in the high-resolution detection and manipulation of single quantum states, in particular unraveling the nuclear quantum effects of interfacial water. He has published over 30 peer-reviewed papers, including 2 in Science, 1 in Nature, and 6 in Nature Journals (Nat. Mat., Nat. Phys., Nat. Chem., etc). He has delivered over 40 invited talks in a number of international conferences (APS, ACS, AVS, etc). 

Ying Jiang was named a number of international and national academic honors and awards, for example, Outstanding Young Scientist (2012),IOP-JPhys Emerging Leaders (2016), Distinguished Young Scholars of National Science Foundation of China (2017), Tan Kah Kee Young Scientist Award (2018). His research works were selected as Top-ten Progresses of Science and Technology of China (2016) and Top-ten Progresses of Basic Research of China (2017).
