Overview

The Interaction Driven Topological States in Frustrated Kagome Systems

Biography

Donna Sheng received her PhD from Nanjing Univ. in 1989 and spent one year as a postdoc at Institute of Theoretical Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences. She joined TcSUH’s theoretical group in 1990, working with Prof. Ting initially as a postdoc and later as a research scientist. She joined California State University – Northridge in 2000 as a faculty member. Dr. Sheng's research focuses on strongly correlated systems. She has extensively developed computational methods which have led to many discoveries in the field of interacting topological materials, including chiral spin liquids, fractional Chern insulators, and spin Bose metals. Currently she is a team member of the Princeton Center for Complex Materials; Senior participant of Princeton NSF MRSEC.
