Dr Shuqiu Wang ‘Rising Star’ in physics

Dr Shuqiu Wang from the Department of Physics at the University of Oxford has been selected as a Rising Star in Physics at the University of California, Berkeley and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in the USA.

The Rising Stars programme recognises some 24 top early career women in physics and astronomy each year and successful applicants are chosen for their track record of research accomplishments. This year’s Rising Stars were invited to present their research at the 2023 Rising Stars in Physics Workshop held in May at the University of California Berkeley. The 3-day workshop highlights the greatest emerging talents in physics and brings the next generation of physics academic leaders together.

Dr Wang presented her talk ‘Visualising the surface states of spin-triplet superconductor UTe2’ both as part of the Rising Stars workshop as well as to the departmental condensed matter physics group.

‘It was a pleasure to meet a variety of emerging and talented young scientists from diverse research fields,’ comments Dr Wang. ‘I will be probably seeing many of these people throughout my future career, and I look forward to collaborating with them. The Rising Stars workshop gave me the opportunity to attend seminars from different fields of physics such as quantum entanglement in diamond defects and the detection of gravitational waves; the experience significantly expanded my scientific world view.’
