Biographic Sketch:

  Prof. Xin-Nian Wang, currently Director of the Institute of Particle Physics at Central China Normal University. He was awarded Ph. D. in physics by the Physics Department at the University of Oregon in 1989 and then went to Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (1989-1991) and Duke University (1991-1992) as a postdoctoral fellow. He was appointed as a Divisional Fellow at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in 1992, became a Senior Scientist since 1997 and was the head of the Nuclear Theory Program during 1999-2007. He became the Program Manager and co-Spokesmen of the JET Topical Collaboration of US Department of Energy since 2010. He was appointed as “1000-plan” Distinguished Professor at Central China Normal University in 2010, and is leading the National Innovative Research Team on high-energy nuclear physics at CCNU since 2013. His main research interest is in high-energy particle and nuclear physics, especially in the search for a new form of matter known as the Quark-Gluon Plasma in high-energy heavy-ion collisions. His past and psent research included application of pQCD in high-energy nuclear physics, transport theory, jet quenching as a probe of QGP properties, Monte Carlo and relativistic hydrodynamic description of high-energy heavy-ion collisions.
