I am currently a fourth-year graduate student and PhD candidate at the University of Florida, working with Dr. Desika Narayanan on cosmic dust formation and evolution utilizing cosmological hydrodynamics simulations. I received my bachelor’s degree in Astronomy at University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) in 2015 before I started my PhD study in the same year. I studied at the Heidelberg University during my senior undergraduate year working with Dr. Volker Springel on clustering of Illustris simulation data.
