About


I am a Ph.D. student at the University of Michigan Department of Astronomy, where I work with Prof. Oleg Gnedin. Before coming to Michigan, I received my B.S. degree at Peking University School of Physics in Jul. 2020. My current research focuses on the formation and evolution of star clusters in cosmological context. Click here to view my research in detail.
