I am currently a 5th-year graduate student in the Department of Astronomy at University of Florida. I received a B.S. in Physics from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China in 2008, and a M.S. in Astronomy from UF in 2010.

My research focuses on massive star formation. Particularly I am constructing radiation transfer models of massive young stellar objects with protostellar evolution, disk winds, collapsing cores in high surface pressure environments, and massive disks selfconsistently included. These simulations are used to interpret multiwavelength observations of massive young stellar objects. My advisor is Dr. Jonathan C. Tan.
