Short Bio: 
Dr. Rujiang Li received the Bachelor degree in Physics (National Base) in 2011 and Master degree in theoretical physics in 2014, both from Shanxi University, China. He received the PhD in Electronics Science and Technology from Zhejiang University, China, in 2018. He was a Postdoctoral Fellow at Tel Aviv University, Israel, in 2018-2019, and a Research Fellow at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, in 2019-2020. In 2021, he joined School of Electroic Engineering, Xidian University, as an Associate Professor of "Huashan Scholars" talent program. His main research interests include topological photonics, nonlinear optics and nanophotonics.

Title: Topological circuits: topological phases in classical electrical circuits

The concept of topology has recently been introduced into the classical systems, such as photonics and acoustics, and various topological phases are discovered. Among the classical systems, electrical circuits are a promising platform to realize the remarkable topological phases because of the highly flexibility and controllability. In this talk, I will present our recent progress on topological circuits and introduce two kinds of topological phases in classical electrical circuits: the ideal type-II Weyl points and the quasicrystalline quadrupole topological insulators.
