Han Pu received his Ph.D. degree in physics from University of Rochester, Rochester, NY, USA, in 1999. His thesis under the supervision of Professor Nicholas Bigelow focused on the physics of spinor Bose-Einstein condensate and quantized vortices of atomic condensates. After a term of postdoctoral research in the University of Arizona where he conducted research in atom optics under Professor Pierre Meyster, he joined the faculty of the Department of Physics and Astronomy of Rice University in 2003. His research interest lies in the field of theoretical ultracold atomic physics and quantum optics. He has made important contributions in specific areas such as spinor condensate, dipolar quantum gases, strongly interacting quantum Fermi gases, and so forth.
