    Professor Chern is a condensed matter physicist. He is interested in the emergent phenomena due to the many-body interaction and correlation. In the last several years, he has been actively participating in three research activities: 1) propose new methods to enhance the performance of nano-devices that are immediately applicable to the information industry, 2) understand important experimental results qualitatively and disclose new physics in novel materials, and 3) theoretically propose new states of matter that exhibit interesting physical properties. Specifically, he has been working on ferroelectricity, disordered systems, frustrated spin systems (spin liquid), Mott insulators, and the quantum Hall effect, and high-Tc superconductors. Persistent interest includes the quantum field theories applicable to the condensed matter systems.
