Research Interests

My main research interest is galaxy formation and simulations. There are three main projects I have been working on: 1. impact of baryons on dark matter halos; 2. formation and evolution of ultra diffuse galaxies; 3. cosmic ray feedback and constraints on cosmic ray propagation.

There is my list of publications (ADS) (Google Scholar).

Cosmic ray feedback and constraints on cosmic ray propagation

Impact of baryons on dark matter halos

Formation and evolution of ultra diffuse galaxies

I worked on gravitational waves and the properties of compact objects with Professor PT Leung in the Chinese University of Hong Kong. I also studied the effect of muons and their propagation on the dark matter detection experiment under a mountain with Professor Kam-Biu Luk in University of California at Berkeley (slides).
