Hong-yi Xie

Postdoctoral Fellow

Condensed Matter Physics


Dr. Hongyi Xie got his PhD at the International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) in Trieste, Italy, in 2012.

As a graduate student, Hongyi worked under the supervision of Michele Fabrizio, Vladimir Kravtsov and Markus Muller in the problem of Anderson localization in systems with competing channels. After leaving ICTP, he became a Welsh Postdoctoral Associate at Rice University until 2016, and then an Assistant Scientist at University of Wisconsin-Madison from 2016 to 2019. Before joining OU, Hongyi was an Associate Research Scientist in the Division of Quantum State of Matter in the Beijing Academy of Quantum Information Sciences, where he was a group leader.

Hongyi has 20 published scientific papers and has worked extensively on the transport properties of quantum systems that involve disorder, many- body interactions and nontrivial topology.
