Benjamin Tong Zhou 周桐

  • Fellowship in 2020 at University of British Columbia

Benjamin obtained his B.Sc. degree in Physics with Physics and Mathematics Option from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) in 2013. He then joined the group of Professor Kam Tuen Law at HKUST and received his Ph.D. degree in condensed matter theory in 2018. After spending another two years of postdoc fellowship at Prof. Law's group, he is joining the Stewart Blusson Quantum Matter Institute of University of British Columbia as a Croucher Postdoctoral Fellow, where he will work with Prof. Marcel Franz to explore the exotic properties of two-dimensional quantum materials.

Benjamin is interested in condensed matter theory in general, with particular focuses on geometric and topological phases of matter, unconventional superconductivity and electronic transport properties.
