Contact Dr Qing He

I received my PhD degree from the Department of Physics of University of California at Berkeley with Professor Ramamoorthy Ramesh in the year of 2011. Then, I continued my research as an ALS postdoctoral fellow at the Advanced Light Source in Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Since 2014, I started to work as a lecturer in Durham University.
