Brief Introduction

Xing studied BS and MS at Tsinghua University (mechanics, 98-04) and PhD at Cambridge University (fluid mechanics, 04-08). Before joining INS SJTU in 2015 he worked at ETH Zurich (geophysics, 09-11), Gottingen University (geophysics, 11-13) and Princeton University (astrophysics, 13-15).

Research Interests

Xing’s research is about geophysical and astrophysical fluid dynamics to understand the physics in planetary and stellar interiors, especially rotating magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) and dynamo theory (i.e. how the magnetic fields of astronomical objects are generated and evolve). The methods of research involve analytical, semi-analytical and small-scale numerical calculations.
