Dr. Yang's research interests focus on the development of novel optical spectroscopies and their application to problems at the forefront of condensed matter and materials physics. She received her B.S. (with Honors) in physics and mathematics from Tsinghua University (2007) under the supervision of Prof. Bangfen Zhu. She earned her Ph.D. in physics from the University of California at Berkeley (2013) working on ultrafast spin dynamics in semiconductors in the group of Prof. Joseph Orenstein. Then she worked as a Los Alamos Director’s Postdoctoral Fellow at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory at Los Alamos with Dr. Scott Crooker. She became an Assistant Professor at the University of Toronto in 2016. She joined the Department of Physics, Tsinghua University in September 2019. In her spare time, Luyi enjoys physical activities and is a big fan of volleyball.
