Dr. Ming Xu

Dr. Ming Xu came to the Prairie View A&M University’s Solar Observatory from the Institute of Plasma Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences where he worked as an Assistant Research Fellow from July 2011 until January 2014.  He earned his Master’s Degree and PhD from the University of Science and Technology of China, Department of Modern Physics in June, 2011.  He received his Bachelor’s degree in Engineering from the Anhui Normal University, Department of Physics in June 2005.

Dr. Xu brings a wealth of experience in physics research including experimental data analyzation, observation and writing articles for publication.  His familiarity with Tokamak physics makes his knowledge and abilities a valuable asset to the Fusion Plasma project in the Department of the Solar Observatory.
