We are a research group focusing on computational condensed matter physics, using density functional theory, effective Hamiltonian, statistical physics, transport theory and computational techniques to investigate materials of fundamental and technological interests. We are particularly interested in the first-principles-based studies of ferroelectrics, multiferroics, thermoelectric properties, and structural transformations.

We are located at the city center of Suzhou, formerly romanized as Soochow, which is a major city of East China (close to Shanghai) and home of the well-known classical gardens. We are looking for passionate new Master and PhD students to join the team (contact information below)!
