Research Interests
Physical properties under high pressure & Design and synthesis of new superconductors. 
1. We study electronic, magnetic and structural properties of matter under pressures and in combination with mK temperature and/or at high magnetic fields by means of electrical conductivity and magnetic susceptibility measurements, high pressure Mossbauer spectroscopy, Raman spectroscopy and synchrotron X-ray powder diffraction.
2. Exploration of new superconducting materials, especially unconventional superconductors and high transition temperature superconductors; Investigation the exotic properties of the new superconducting materials via investigating the crystal, magnetic and electronic structures.
