Hi, I am Xufeng Kou, a postdoctoral researcher in Device Research Lab (DRL) at University of California, Los Angeles.

I received my BS degree (with honor) in Chu Kochen Honors College and Optical Engineering from Zhejiang University (2009). From 2009 to 2015, I received my MS and PhD degrees in Electrical Engineering from University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), under the direction of Raytheon Chair Professor Kang L. Wang. My research interest includes novel semiconductors (topological insulators and dilute magnetic semiconductors) and their nano-electronics/spintronics applications. During my PhD career, I have co-authored 39 peer-reviewed journal papers including Nature Mater, Nature Nano., Phys. Rev. Lett., Nano Lett., J. Amer. Chem. Soc., and ACS Nano., with more than 900 citations (h-index of 18). I also hold several awards including the Distinguished PhD Dissertation Award (2015), Qualcomm Innovation Fellowship (2012), and Chinese Outstanding Student Abroad Scholarship (2013).
