Welcom to Xu Group
Beijing Computational Science Research Center
How do our blood cells move along the flow generated by our heart beat? Why do fish swim in coordination? What makes glass transparent like a liquid while stiff like a solid? These are common examples where systems driven out of equilibrium display very interesting phenomena but are not well understood at all. Here in our group we go beyond traditional equilibrium theories and try to unveil the fundamentals of non-equilibrium statistics. In close collaboration with experimentalists worldwide, we work on a wide range of materials and biological systems through both analytical modeling and computational approaches.
Positions Available:We are hiring at all levels! Motivated individuals please contact Xinliang Xu at firstname.lastname@example.org. For postdoc positions, please also include your CV.
We are also hiring in collaboration with experimental groups:
1. Prof. Cheng at University of Minnesota, study of the non-equilibrium dynamics and rheology in E-coli suspensions.
2. Prof. Han at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, study of the vitrification or crystallization of colloidal suspensions.
3. Prof. Xu at Chinese University of Hong Kong, study of the nucleation process of colloidal suspensions.
