My current research interest mainly focuses on dark matter and galaxy formation physics in a cosmological context. With cosmological simulations, I aim to quantify the connection between visible galaxies and invisible dark matter halos, and from there, to further explore the nature of dark matter and galaxy formation physics.

Specifically I have been working on:

I also participate in many collaborative projects, including:
