Hung Ming Tsai

Hung Ming TsaiHung Ming Tsai received his B.S. degree in physics from National Taiwan Normal University (2002), M.S. degree in physics from National Taiwan University (2005), and Ph.D. degree in physics from Duke University (2011). After receiving his Ph.D. degree, he did his postdoctoral research work at Text Tech University under the supervision of Dr. Bill Poirier. His main research project focused on developing a trajectory-based theory for relativistic quantum particles. As of mid-2019, he had been teaching introductory physics courses as a postdoctoral teaching scholar until he began his new appointment as a full-time lecturer in the Department of Physics and Astronomy in Fall 2021. As a theoretical physicist, he has been enthusiastic about both teaching and research.  His research interests encompass exploring a trajectory-based formulation of quantum mechanics in the relativistic and nonrelativistic regimes, analyzing equilibration of quantum chaotic systems, modeling the phase transitions of quark-gluon plasma, etc.
