Biographical Info

My thesis work is focused on understanding the magnetic properties of the interstellar medium (ISM) within our Galaxy. In particular, I am interested in understanding how the Galactic magnetic field connects between different phases and spatial scales within the ISM. I am also interested in interstellar extinction in star forming regions where the ISM is primarily molecular. To do this, I am using optical and infrared photometry to study stellar extinction curves within a nearby giant molecular cloud with the goal of more accurately characterizing the ISM dust properties.

Website: http://astro.utoronto.ca/~horrobin/

Biographical Info

I study the formation of planets, their interiors and planetary orbital dynamics. My goal is to determine how formation and orbital interactions influence the population of rocky exoplanets in terms of orbital and physical properties. I am also interested in the implications of these findings on exoplanet habitability. I depend primarily on numerical simulations of orbital dynamics and planetary interiors with the occasional use of observations of solar system and extra-solar bodies.

Biographical Info

I was born and raised in Shanghai, China. I received my bachelor degree in astronomy at the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC). My research interests cover a wide range but focus on galaxies. In my spare time, you can see me playing badminton/swimming/jogging. I enjoy traveling in different countries and visiting museums.

Biographical Info

I grew up in the Twin Cities, Minnesota, and did my undergrad in physics and astronomy at the University of Minnesota. My hobbies have variously included hiking, biking, ultimate frisbee, lindy hop, and keeping tropical freshwater fish in my office. I am of the strong opinion that extreme cold such as that found in Minnesota and Canadian winters feels better than the mild-yet-humid cold of marginally-warmer climates, and that having strong seasonal climate variations builds character.
