Dr. Wei Bobo obtained his bachelor degree in Northwest University in 2006 and MPhil degree at The Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2008 (under the supervision of Hai-Qing Lin). He got his PhD degree from The Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2011(under the supervision of Hai-Qing Lin). Dr. Wei joined the group of Ren-Bao Liu at The Chinese University of Hong Kong as a postdoc from 2011 to 2015 and then he joined the group of Martin Plenio at the institute of theoretical physics, University of Ulm as a postdoc from 2015 to 2016. Then he joined the Shenzhen University as assistant professor from 2016-2018. Then he will join The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shenzhen (CUHK-SZ) as assistant professor in 2019. He mainly works on theoretical physics, including condensed matter physics and statistical mechanics, in particular the quantum many-body systems in and out of equilibrium. Dr. Wei has published 24 papers in the international peer reviewed journals, such as Physical Review Letters, Physical Review A/E, etc.
