Friday, October 02, 2020 at 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Virtual Event

Register for a webcast spotlighting the work of Mingda Li PhD '15, Norman C. Rasmussen Assistant Professor in the MIT Department of Nuclear Science and Engineering.

The title of Li's talk: “A Tale of Two Singularities: Neutrons uncover the hidden phenomena in exotic topological materials.” Prof. Li will discuss his latest research on the topic and take questions from alumni in this interactive forum.

Closed captioning will be available. An archive of this webcast will be made available on the MIT Alumni Association YouTube channel within a week of broadcast.

About Mingda Li

Mingda Li joined the Department of Nuclear Science and Engineering at MIT in January 2018 as an Assistant Professor. His research interest lies in understanding the mechanism of complex defects on materials’ functional properties, and engineering the defects toward efficient and optimized energy applications.

His research group, Energy Nano Group (ENG), is currently developing microscopic quantum theories of defects, growing single crystals with controllable defects, and using artificial intelligence algorithms to assist spectroscopy analysis, to resolve the role that defects are playing on energy transport and conversion processes...[more]
