Hello! I'm a Miller Postdoctoral Fellow in Department of Astronomy at UC Berkeley. I'm interested in baryon cycles between galaxies and their circumgalactic medium (CGM), including inflows, outflows, and gas recycling. My research focuses on constructing a coherent picture of how baryons are cycled and recycled between galaxies and their CGM using multi-wavelength spectroscopy (UV, HI 21cm, IFU, etc.) and cosmological simulations (Enzo & FOGGIE). (My CV Here)
I grew up in a beautiful village called Liaoyan (蓼沿) in southern China. I completed my bachelor’s degree in Astronomy in 2012 in Peking University, supervised by Prof. Richard de Grijs and Prof. Xiao-Wei Liu. From 2012 to 2018, I lived in New York City and pursued Ph.D degree in Columbia University. I was advised by Prof. Mary Putman and Dr. Joshua Peek, studying the diffuse neutral and ionized gas (mostly hydrogen and helium) that fills the vast majority of galactic and circumgalactic space using radio/UV observations. In fall 2018, I moved to Berkeley and continues my CGM research as a Miller Fellow hosted by Prof. Daniel Weisz. When not stargazing, activities such as climbing, running, yoga, and reading delightfully fill my spare time.
