Tutorial Introduction

Prof. Dr.  Shuiquan Deng

He got his Ph. D Degree from Fujian Institute of Research on the Structure of Matter (FJIRSM), Chinese Academy of Sciences in 1992. In the period of time between 1992 and 1995 he was appointed as an assistant professor and then as an associate professor in the same institute. From 1995 to 1996, he worked in the Geneve University of Switzerland as a guest scientist. From 1996 to 1998 he worked in Max-Planck-Institute for solid state research, Stuttgart, Germany, as a guest scientist. In 1998, he was appointed as a BAT-IIa staff scientist and the theory group leader of Abt. Simon, and promoted in 2004 as a BAT-Ib staff scientist until 2014. In 2007, he was awarded an honorary professor by Anshan University of Science and Technology. In 2013, he was appointed a guest professor by Southwest Jiaotong University. Since Sept. 2014, he has been engaged as a full professor and PI by FJIRSM through the "100 talents program" of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. His main research interest is on the theory and numeric simulation for the relations between multi-scale structures and the properties such as superconductivity, optical, multifferoic and symmetry/topology dependent properties etc.
