Prof. Jian Shen
Jian Shen received his Ph.D from Max-Planck Institut f. Mikrostrukturphyisik in 1996, and became a staff scientist in Oak Ridge National Laboratory in 1998. He joined Fudan university in 2010 as the HaoQing chair professor and the head of physics department, and was elected as APS fellow in 2011. His research interest is on the investigation of emerging phenomena at surface, in reduced dimensionality, and at nanometer scale. Specific interest includes magnetism and electronic transport of low-dimensional materials and complex oxides, and their underlying physical mechanism. So far he has written six review articles for Surface Science, Surface Science Report, and J.Phys: Condensed Matter on low-dimensional magnetism. He has given over 100 invited talks at international conferences including APS, AVS, MRS, MMM, Intermag and ICM. He has been served as the chair for the magnetism division in AVS, and the program chair for Intermag 2012. His past research has received a number awards including 2003 US Presidential Early Career Award for Science and Engineering (PECASE), the Otto-Hahn Medal from Max-Plank Society in Germany, the National Chair Professorship from Chinese government, the oversea outstanding young researcher award from Chinese NSF, and the Wigner fellow from Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
