Group members


Welcome to the Meng's group in the Key Laboratory of Condensed Matter Theory and Computation, Institute of Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences. We are interested in numerical investigations on strongly correlated electron systems, especially employing and developing large-scale quantum Monte Carlo and cluster dynamic mean-field theory simulations. Currently our group has one PI (Zi Yang Meng), one postdoctoral researcher (Yan-Cheng Wang) and 6 graduate students.


Prof. Zi Yang Meng

Associate Professor

I joined the Institute of Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (IOP, CAS) as an associate professor in August 2014, with the support from the National Thousand-Young-Talents Program of China. Before that I worked at the Department of Physics, University of Toronto as a postdoctoral fellow in the group of Prof. Hae-Young Kee and Prof. Yong-Baek Kim, and the Department of Physics and Astronomy, Louisiana State University as a postdoctoral fellow in the group of Prof. Mark Jarrell. I graduated from the University of Stuttgart, Germany, with a Ph.D. in theoretical condensed matter physics in 2011. My research specializes in strongly correlated electron systems and computational condensed matter physics, in particular quantum Monte Carlo and cluster dynamic mean field simulations. In this page you can find information about my research (on topics such as quantum magnetism, topological states of matter, quantum spin liquids, unconventional superconductivity, etc), publications, talks, lecture notes and codes, and last but not least, my causal writings about understanding of the world in and outside physics.
