Welcome to my homepage!@ Yellow Stone

I am a Postdoc Fellow at the Chile Observatory, National Astronomical Observatory of Japan, starting from August 1st, 2016. I received my PhD degree from Nanjing University, China, supervised by Prof. Qiusheng Gu and Dr. Qizhou Zhang, in June 2016. During 2012-2015 I also worked as an SMA Pre-doctoral Fellow at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, supervised by Dr. Qizhou Zhang.

My research focusses on high-mass star formation in massive molecular clouds throughout the Galaxy, from infrared dark clouds to the Central Molecular Zone. I use radio and sub-millimeter continuum and spectral line observations from e.g., the SMA, JVLA, GBT, IRAM 30m, and CSO, to study physical conditions in high-mass star formation regions from 1-pc to <0.1-pc scales.

I am also interested in programming to speed up our daily works. I use IDL and Python mostly (see below for a 3D scene of CO outflows I created with Python), while I am expericenced with Mathematica/Javascript.
