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.





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.
