Yingtian "Bill" Chen


I am a Ph.D. candidate 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 in 2020.

I am a theorist trying to unravel the nature of star cluster formation and evolution. In small scales, I study the hierarchical assembly of star clusters from giant clouds. In large scales, I develop semi-analytical models on existing cosmological simulation suites to follow the lifespan of globular clusters from their birth to death across more than ten billion years.
