I was born and had my childhood in a small town about ten miles next to the north east border between China and Russia. After elementary school, I moved with my families to Ningbo in south east of China, which is also my father's hometown. In 1998, I went to Univ. of Sci. & Tech. of China (USTC) in Hefei for college. I spent my first three years in space science, and then switched to astrophysics and received my bachelor and master degrees in astronomy. I went abroad pursuing PhD degree afterwards. In Johns Hopkins Univ. (JHU), I worked with Prof. Julian H. Krolik in theoretical astrophysics. Together we did several interesting projects, such as constructing an AGN torus model with radiation pressure support, measuring the MHD turbulence levels using numerical simulations with variable resolution, and modelling accretion disks orbiting around massive binary black holes. I graduated in September 2011 and came to UC Berkeley afterwards. Here I study planet/planetesimal formation and protoplanetary disks.
