  Dr. Yang Ding joined HPSTAR as a staff scientist in June 2015. He was a Physicist (staff scientist) in the X-Ray Science Division at Argonne National Laboratory from 2011-2015, and a Research Scientist at Geophysical Laboratory of Carnegie Institution of Washington from 2005-2011. He received his Ph.D. from the Johns Hopkins University in 2002 and B.S. from Nanjing University in 1991.

  His research mainly concerns high-pressure condensed matter physics. His current interest focuses on studying emergent phenomena such as superconductivity, magnetism, and phase transitions in electron strongly correlated materials at high pressure by using novel synchrotron methods (i.e. resonant inelastic x-ray scattering, resonant x-ray emission, inelastic x-ray scattering, magnetic x-ray circular dichroism, x-ray absorption, nano-imaging).
