Since August 2018, I am a Theoretical Astrophysics Center (TAC) postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Astronomy at UC Berkeley, working primarily with Prof. Eliot Quataert. I received my Ph.D. in theoretical astrophysics from Caltech in June 2018, advised by Prof. Phil Hopkins.
New: I will join the Kavli Institute of Astronomy and Astrophysics (KIAA) at Peking University as a tenure-track assistant professor in fall 2022. They offer multiple postdoctoral fellowships -- please check out here if you are interested in working with us. Prior to that, I will spend one year at Steward Observatory as a theory prize fellow.
I have been an active member of the Feedback in Realistic Environments (FIRE) collaboration. I carry out massive hydrodynamic simulations and Monte Carlo radiative transfer calculations on big supercomputers to study a broad range of topics in galaxy formation, the interstellar medium, star formation, feedback, and supermassive black holes. I have the fortune to work closely with many great people, both theorists and observers, inside and outside the FIRE team.
I was born and raised in Tianjin, a major city in China next to its capital, Beijing, and known as the capital of humor. I was an undergraduate student in astronomy from August 2009 to June 2013 at the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC, in Hefei, Anhui province) before coming to Caltech for graduate study.
