Administrator and writer of AstroleaksHomepage of Astroleaks

Astroleaks is a website for professional discussion and expirence-sharing, maintained by a few graduate students from universities and observatories in China as well as in the US and Europe. We started it in 2011 and hope to use it as a platform for discussing papers and sharing research experience, or a hybrid of the well-known astrobites and astrobetter. I have contributed 12 articles, with topics covering e.g. solar physics, magnetic field, and programming. In 2014 I became one of the administrators.

Mentor of summer interns at the CfA

I worked with interns at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics in the last three summers. The interns were students from colleges and high schools and spent the summer at the CfA to conduct short-term research projects. I helped them get started with data reduction or programming, and dicussed with them frequently on their work. I enjoyed working with the talented pre-/proto-astronomers from whom I learned many research tricks.

Associate editor of College Natural SciencesFirst issue of the journal

College Natural Sciences is a journal organized, written, and edited by undergraduate students from universities in China. It publishes undergraduate students' reseach works in various fields from astronomy to biology, providing an opportunity for them to present their rearch to a broad audience.
