Research and Publications

Research Interests:
Yunhua Ding's research focuses on theoretical studies of spacetime symmetries, the foundation of Einstein’s relativity, with primary interest in testing Lorentz and CPT symmetries in precision experiments. His recent work with his undergraduate explored possible Lorentz- and CPT-violating signals in experiments comparing fundamental properties, such as charge-to-mass ratios and magnetic moments, between particles and antiparticles using Penning traps. Currently, he is studying possible Lorentz- and CPT-violating effects in experiments searching for nonzero electric dipole moments. More information can be found on Yunhua Ding's Personal Website.
