Wen Liangjian

My name is Wen Liangjian. I am 27 years old, and I was born in a small city in the middle of China. When I was a child, I was interested in science and nature and dreamed to be a scientist. Thanks to my parents, who provided me great support and encouragement to accomplish my dream, I am now on the way. Since 2010, I have had a postdoc position at the Institute of High Energy Physics (IHEP) in China, where I'm working on the Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment, which aims to determine the unknown neutrino mixing angle θ13. We will start taking physics data this summer. Hopefully our collaboration can be the first to hunt down the mysterious mixing angle.

I began studying physics in 2001 at the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC), and got a bachelor of science in applied physics in 2005. USTC is one of the top universities in physics, where I started to learn the fundamentals of modern physics. When I became a senior student, I had great interests in particle and nuclear physics and chose it as my major.

After graduating, from 2005 to 2010, I moved to the IHEP for Ph.D. study and a major in experimental particle physics. My supervisor, Prof. Cao Jun, brought me to the Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment. In the collaboration, I was responsible for the design and fabrication of an important detector component, the reflectors. I developed the algorithm of vertex reconstruction and electronics simulation code. I also studied backgrounds, light propagation in large liquid scintillator detector. In the summer of 2010, I got my Ph.D. degree.
