Shuolong obtained his BS in physics at Stanford University. He continued to pursue his PhD in applied physics at Stanford University.

Before coming to the Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering at the University of Chicago as assistant professor of molecular engineering in 2018, Prof. Yang was a Kavli postdoctoral fellow at Cornell University, working at the interface between condensed matter physics and materials science.

Yang Lab utilizes molecular beam epitaxy to engineer quantum materials layer-by-layer, and characterizes the electronic properties of these materials using equilibrium and non-equilibrium photoemission spectroscopies. We are primarily interested in the quantum phenomena emerging at material interfaces, such as interfacial superconductivity and topological orders. Furthermore, ultrafast photoemission spectroscopy provides additional control over materials in the time domain, enabling us to drive materials into novel non-equilibrium states.
