Hi I'm Yuan Cao, currently a postdoc researcher and Junior Fellow at Harvard. I graduated from MIT in 2020 as PhD and joined Harvard in 2021. My current research is condensed-matter physics in 2-dimensional materials. I specialize on the study of 'twistronics' —— electronics in materials with a 'twist'.
My interests and specialties are quite diverse, spanning from physics, electronic engineering, nanotechnology, and computer science. I am also hobbyist in electronic hacking, astrophotography, and violin.
