||Kitty Yeung (M. Sci,
Kitty Yeung received First Class M. Sci. and B.A. degrees in University of Cambridge, UK, in Theoretical and Experimetal Physics and Natural Sciences, respectively, in 2010, where she ranked 1st in Cambridge Gonville and Caius College. She is currently working towards the PhD degree in applied physics at Harvard University.
Kitty's current research focus is on the interacting electron dynamics in low-dimensional electronic systems, and their exploitation to design novel devices and circuits at GHz, THz, and optical frequencies.
Kitty also worked with Prof. Evelyn Hu at Harvard in her first year, on coupled quantum dot emissions with surface plasmon polariton based nanocavities. In University of Cambridge, she worked with Prof. Sir Richard Friend and Dr. Jacqui Cole on the thin film ruthenium-based complexes as potential media for optical data storage. She also worked with Prof. G. G. Lonzarich and Prof. S. S. Saxena in the Cavendish Laboratory on extremely low temperature phenomena, including ferroelectrics quantum phase transitions and heavy fermion electric conductivity temperature power laws.
She was awarded the 2009 Catherine Yates Memorial Prize, the 2010 Hong Kong Croucher Foundation, the 2009 Mary Euphrasia Mosley, Sir Bartle Frere & Worts Travel Funds, the 2007 HSBC Awards for Academic Excellence, and the 2007 Cambridge European Trust. She has been the scholar of Cambridge Overseas Trust throughout her undergraduate and master study from 2007-2010. She won the 2011 Harvard Applied Physics FEST Poster Contest, and several piano competitions such as the 2006 Chinese National Piano Competition. She also has paintings and literatures in publications, including the 2011 Dudley Review and won the 2006 Shenzhen City Newspaper Solicited Aritcles Competition.
