I am a PhD candidate in Physics at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech). Currently, I'm working with Professor Jim Fuller on a variety of topics in astrophysics theory. I'm particulaly interested in the tidal evolution of binaries, including those hosting exoplanets and black holes. I also did some projects about stellar oscillation and galactic dynamics.
I obtained my Bachelor's degree in Theoretical Physics at the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) in 2019. As an undergraduate student, I worked with Professor Jim Fuller on the spin of massive stellar remnants (i.e. neutron stars and stellar-mass black holes), and with Professor Matthias Bartelmann at the Institut für Theoretische Physik, Universität Heidelberg on a non-equilibrium statistical field theory on cosmic structure formation.
In addition to science, I enjoy classical music and opera, especially the works from late-romantic to modernist era. I am also a frequent traveller, and have travelled to 20 countries and over 100 towns so far.
