My name is Xianguo Lu, or 卢显国 (Mandarin Chinese pronunciation). I am an experimental physicist studying elementary particles like neutrinos.
I got my BSc. from Peking University (2007), Diplom-Physiker from the University of Hamburg (2009), and Dr. rer. nat. from the University of Heidelberg (2013). I was a postdoc in heavy ion physics at the University of Heidelberg, and then in neutrino physics at the University of Oxford before moving on to become an STFC Ernest Rutherford Fellow. I am also a Senior Research Fellow in Pembroke College.
I am an unambitious but regular runner, having run a little more than 300 kilometres in 2020. I particularly enjoy running during my travel. The following are some of my memorable moments:
- 5 km Île de la Cité-Île Saint-Louis, Paris, France, July 2019,
- 5 km in Venice, Italy, June 2019,
- 12 km in Central Park, New York, US, July 2018, and
- 10 km around Lake Senba, Mito, Japan, February 2018.
