I am primarily interested in using a combination of simulations, statistics and observations to answer questions about our Universe. Recently, I have used strong gravitational lensing and Bayesian inference techniques to constrain ultra-light dark matter theories. I have also worked on 21cm cosmology, from a theoretical and experimental perspective. For instance, I have investigated the effect of spin temperature on the relationship between matter and ionized hydrogen during the Epoch of Reionization with MCMC methods.
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.
I hail from the sunny region of Southern California, where the abundance of dark sky preserves sparked my fascination with the cosmos. My current research is centered on the first observations of massive stars that have had their hydrogen envelopes removed by their binary companions. These stripped stars hold great significance in nearly every realm of astrophysics, spanning from potential sources of gravitational waves to their role in cosmic reionization.
