Zhenyue Zhu is a member of the Tensor Networks Group, working with Steven White at the University of California, Irvine. He graduated with an M.S. degree in physics at Oklahoma State University in 2007 and a Ph.D. from the University of California, Irvine in 2013, under the guidance of Steven White.
Zhu’s early interest was in the transport and localization properties in the 2D electronic gas systems with spin orbital interactions and quantum anomalous Hall effect in graphene systems. Now he focuses on the quantum many-body problems, searching for realistic topological spin liquid states in various lattices with the density matrix renormalization method.
