MA Yongge

Prof. Yongge Ma is the director of the Center for Relativity and Gravitation. He acquired his PhD. from the Department of Physics at Beijing Normal University in 1999. He had taken a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Cordoba (Argentina) and the Penn State University (USA) from 1999 to 2001. He had also been a member of the Committee of the International Society for General Relativity and Gravitation from 2007 to 2013, Secretary General and Vice President of the Gravity and Relativistic Astrophysics Branch of the Chinese Physical Society from 2008 to 2021. He is currently a Professor at the Department of Physics of Beijing Normal University, a co-editor of EPL (Europhysics Letters). He won the Second Prize of Natural Science in Colleges and Universities by China Ministry of Education in 2016.
