Postdoctoral Scholar
University of California, Los Angeles

Yabin Fan is currently a postdoctoral researcher in the Device Research Laboratory (DRL) of the Electrical Engineering Department at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), under the mentorship of Prof. Kang L. Wang. He obtained the M.S. degree in 2012 and the Ph.D. degree in 2016, both in the Electrical Engineering Department at UCLA. His research focuses on spintronics devices based on topological materials, such as the current-induced giant spin-orbit torque in topological insulator-based magnetic structures, quantum anomalous Hall effect in magnetic topological insulators, and various spin-orbit torque phenomena in topological materials with strong spin-orbit coupling. He is a member of the American Physical Society (APS). During his graduate research, he has authored and co-authored over 30 journal papers. In addition, he has received the Best Student Presentation Finalist Award in the 59th Magnetism and Magnetic Materials (MMM) annual conference in 2014 and the Chinese Government Award for Outstanding Graduate Students Abroad in 2015.
