Recently, the National Natural Science Foundation Committee announced the 2020 Outstanding Youth Science Foundation Project evaluation results. Prof. Zhao Lichen, School of Physics, and his project on “Integrable System with Nonlinear Local Wave Mechanics”, together with Associate Professor Sun Shengsi, Department of Geology, and his project on “Tectonic Geology” were awarded with the Outstanding Youth Science Foundation Project Sponsorship. The project direct fund is 1.2 Million Yuan respectively.
So far, the number of winners of the Outstanding Youth Science Foundation Project in NWU has increased to 11, including 3 from the Department of Geology, 3 from the School of Chemistry and Material Science, 2 from the School of Life Sciences, 1 from the School of Mathematics, 1 from the School of Physics and 1 from the School of Information Science and Technology.
Zhao Lichen, professor and doctoral supervisor at the School of Physics, graduated from Shihezi University with a bachelor's degree in 2006. He received his Master's degree in Theoretical Physics from Northwest University in 2010 and his doctor's degree in Theoretical Physics from University of Science and Technology of China in 2013. His research mainly focuses on the nonlinear local wave excitation mechanism based on integrable systems and its application.
Sun Shengsi, associate professor and doctoral supervisor at the Department of Geology. In 2007, He graduated from the Nanjing University majoring in Geology. In 2012, he received his doctorate in Structural Geology from the University of Montreal, Canada. He is mainly engaged in the study of structural geology and rheology.
