Distinguished Research Fellow
Xing studied BS and MS at Tsinghua University and PhD at Cambridge University. Before joining INS SJTU he worked at ETH Zurich, Gottingen University and Princeton University.
Xing’s research is about geophysical and astrophysical fluid dynamics, especially rotating magneto-hydrodynamics and dynamo theory.
