Biography

Dr Shubo Wang received BSc degree from Shandong University in 2009 and PhD degree from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) in 2013. He then worked as a Visiting Scholar in Prof. C. T. Chan’s group in the Department of Physics and Institute for Advanced Study at HKUST. He joined the Department of Physics at City University of Hong Kong in 2017 as an Assistant Professor. Dr Wang is interested in general wave physics including angular momentum, chiral light-matter interactions, ​singular optics, non-Hermitian optics, metamaterials, ​photonic crystals, and optical forces. He has published more than 40 papers in peer reviewed journals including Nature Communications, Science Advances, Physical Review Letters, and Physical Review X, among which some are selected as "Editors' Suggestion", highlighted in Nature Photonics, and received media coverage by EurekAlertPhys.orgScience MagazineScience Daily, CityU News, etc. He serves as a reviewer for many journals including Nature, Nature Communications, Science Advances, Physical Review Letters, etc. He has delivered 19 invited/keynote talks at international conferences such as META, PIERS, and CLEO. Dr Wang is the PI of three GRF projects and one NSFC project and is the Co-PI of one CRF project. He received William Mong Outstanding Paper Award (2012) and Faculty Service Award (2020). Under his supervision, four UG students received the Distinguished Final Year Project Award and two PhD students received conference Oral Presentation Award.
