Professor Wei Xiong is an Associate Professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of California, San Diego. Wei received his B.S. degree from Peking University, China, in 2006. He completed his Ph.D. degree in 2011, under the supervision of Prof. Zanni at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. After doing a postdoctoral research in the University of Colorado, Boulder, with Profs. Murnane and Kapteyn, in 2014, he joined the faculty at the University of California San Diego in 2014. At UCSD, Wei’s group focuses on using and developing ultrafast nonlinear spectroscopic and imaging tools to reveal molecular structures and dynamics of materials, including ultrafast dynamics of polaritonic systems, guest molecule adsorptions on porous materials, femtosecond charge transfer dynamics on organic material interfaces. He isa recipient of many awards, including DARPA Young Faculty Award (2015), AFOSR Young investigator Program Award (2016), DARPA Director’s Fellow (2017), NSF CAREER Award (2019), ACS JPC/PHYS Lectureship Award (2019), Sloan Research Fellow (2020), and NIH Maximizing Investigator’s Research Award (2020). He is also the leading PI of a recently awarded MURI program.
