- Fellowship in 2012 at Harvard University
Dr. Ching-Kit Chan is a theoretical physicist and has been venturing in the research area of quantum condensed matter physics. In this fascinating field of science, Dr. Chan has been fortunate to interact with inspiring scientists and make life-long friends throughout the globe. He obtained his Ph.D. degree in Physics at University of California San Diego. Dr. Chan was very honored to receive the Croucher Foundation Fellowship and worked as a postdoctoral research fellow at Harvard University. Later, he joined the Department of Physics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology as a postdoctoral associate. Dr. Chan is currently an assistant adjunct professor at University of California Los Angeles.
Dr. Chan has been working in the interface between condensed matter physics (materials) and optics (light). He has been interested in several exciting research areas related to quantum physics, such as topological materials, non-equilibrium phenomena, quantum phase transitions, many body physics and quantum information. The main goals of his research include the search for exotic quantum matters with emergent properties and the implementation of novel quantum technologies.
