Chao Hang

Associate Professor of Physics
East China Normal University


Chao Hang received his B.S. in 2002 and Ph.D. degree in 2007 from Department of Physics at East China Normal University. Then he spent three years as a postdoc fellow in Center of Theoretical and Computational Physics at University of Lisbon. In 2007, he joined East China Normal University as Lecture, where he became Associate Professor in the end of 2011.

Dr. Hang focuses his research in nonlinear and quantum optics and nonlinear waves in Bose-Einstein condensate.
