Research Interests

I have worked on a broad range of topics in galaxy formation and evolution using state-of-the-art cosmological hydrodynamic simulations, including galactic chemical evolution, galaxies at the epoch of reionization, and supermassive black hole growth and feedback. Recently, I build a large suite of cosmological zoom-in simulations of galaxies in the first billion years of the Universe. I will combine the simulations and radiative transfer calculations to understand the ionizing photon budgets these galaxies contribute to cosmic reionization and predict observables for future HST, ALMA, and JWST programs.

 

 

 

Biography

I was born and raised in Tianjin, China. I went to Tianjin Nankai High School from 2006 to 2009. I got my B.S. in astronomy from University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) in 2013 and Ph.D. from Caltech in 2018 before coming to Berkeley as a postdoc.
