- I am currently a PSL Fellow at the GEPI department of the Observatoire de Paris in Meudon. I worked as an IAC Fellow at the Instituto de Astrofisica de Canarias in Tenerife of Spain from 2013 to 2016. I did my PhD in astrophysics and worked as a researcher at the Centre for Astrophysics Research of the University of Hertfordshire in the UK between 2008 and 2013. I did my MSc in astrophysics at the Yunnan Astronomical Observatory of the Chinese Academy of Sciences from 2005 to 2008. I obtained a BSc in applied physics at the Yantai University in 2000-2004. I was born and raised in Tai'an of Shandong province, China.
