Educational Background
  • M.Sc., Astronomy, University of Florida, 2014
  • B.Sc., Astronomy & Physics, University of Science & Technology of China

Areas of Specialty
Planet Formation, Protoplanetary disks, Planet-disk ineraction, Systems with Tightly packed Inner Planets from Kepler, dust-pebble evolution in protoplanetary disks.

Research Interests
I'm generally intersted in physics process in planet formation. Currently I'm working with Prof. Jonathan C. Tan on numerical simualtions of Inside-Out Planet Formation, a model proposed to explain the formation of compact planet systems detected by Kepler.My work includes hydro simulations of protoplanetary disks (main code used: FARGO), and I'm also building my own model on global dust-pebble evolution.

Biography
I'm currently a graduate student in the Department of Astronomy at the University of Florida. I received my bachelor's degree from the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) where I studied physics and astronomy.
