Xin Qian is a PhD student working with Prof. Ronggui Yang. He works on modeling thermal transport in hybrid organic-inorganic crystals.
His modeling of thermal transport in the organic-inorganic perovskite with green energy applications was recently highlighted as one of the Top 10 Most Cited Articles in Applied Physics Letters. He also works on experimental characterization of ultrafast thermal transport using a femtosecond laser.
Beyond school, Xin enjoys soccer, watching anime, listening to Chinese rap songs in Szechuan dialect and playing the card game Hearthstone.
