Dr. Hai Wang studied materials science at Zhejiang University in China and obtained his degree in 2009.
Between 2009 and 2011, he finished a joint master’s program in nanoscience at the University of Leuven (2009-2010) in Belgium and Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands (2010-2011), supported by the Erasmus Mundus fellowship.
In 2012-2016, Hai conducted his PhD research with Prof. Mischa Bonn and graduated with Summa Cum Laude in 2016.
After spending 1 year in the group of Mathias Kläui at the University of Mainz as a postdoc, he started his independent research group “Nano- optoelectronic materials” in the Molecular Spectroscopy department at MPI-P in 2017.
Since June of 2023, Hai has moved to Utrecht University in the Netherlands as an assistant professor. Employing ultrafast THz spectroscopy, Hai’s research theme lies in understanding fundamental charge carrier dynamics and low-energy excitations in low-dimensional quantum materials and interfaces, relevant for energy and (opto)electronic applications.
Inside the Qumat network, Hai would like to explore THz and electrical control of many-body effects (e.g., exciton complex) in two-dimensional van der Waals layers and charge transport effects in organic crystals.
