Danhua Capitals founding partner, Zhang Shousheng, died on December 1, 2018, according to an e-mail from Danhua Capital on December 6.
Shou-Cheng Zhang, an American Chinese scientist, was born in Shanghai in 1963. Lifelong Professor, Department of Physics, Department of Electronic Engineering and Department of Applied Physics, Stanford University. In 2007, the quantum spin Hall effect discovered by Zhang Shousheng was ranked as one of the ten most important scientific breakthroughs in the world by Science magazine.
In 2013, Professor Zhang Shousheng and his Stanford student Dr. Gu Anjia jointly founded Danhua Capital, focusing on investing in innovative technology and business models in the United States and connecting innovation in the United States with the Chinese market.
Danhua Capital is still operating normally.
Zhang Shousheng, a 95-year-old disciple of Yang Zhenning, appeared in Hunan Satellite TVs I am the Future to evoke the memory of Zhang Shousheng, a famous physicist and founder of Danhua Capital. He said that the image of Yang Laos kindness has never changed, which is the same as what he had seen in his class. His nostalgia for his teacher is overflowing.
Zhang Shousheng resume:
Born in Shanghai in 1963. Founding Chairman of Danhua Capital, Lifelong Professor, Department of Physics, Electronic Engineering and Applied Physics, Stanford University, 1000 Visiting Professors, Institute of Higher Education, Tsinghua University, and Academician of American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
In 1983, he received a bachelors degree from the Free University of Berlin, Germany.
In 1987, he received his Ph.D. from Stony Brook, New York State University.
He was a postdoctoral fellow at the Santa Barbara Institute of Theoretical Physics in the United States from 1987 to 1989.
1989-1993 Senior Fellow, IBM Almaden Research Center.
He was employed in the Department of Physics at Stanford University in 1993.
In 2009, it was selected as the National Thousand-Person Program.
In 2013, he was elected a foreign academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
The main research area is condensed matter physics, with emphasis on topological insulators. In the fields of high temperature superconductivity, quantum Hall effect, spintronics and strongly correlated electronic systems, Zhang Shousheng has made a lot of first-class original innovations in the world.
In 2007, he won the Guggenheim Scholar Award.
In 2009, he won the Humboldt Scholar Award for his pioneering research on quantum spin Hall effect and topological insulators. In 2010, he won the European Physics Award and the Gutenberg Research Award in Germany.
In September 2011, he won the Hong Kong Qiushi Science and Technology Foundations Outstanding Scientist Award for Seeking Truth.
In 2012, he won the Oliver Buckley Award of the American Physical Society (the highest award in condensed matter physics), and the Dirac Award of the International Center for Theoretical Physics under UNESCO in the same year.
In 2013, he won the Yuri Frontier Prize in Basic Physics.
On December 13, 2016, the top ten Chinese Economic Persons of 2016.
