I am a 5th-year Ph.D. candidate in Astrophysics and Astronomy at the Henry A. Rowland Department of Physics & Astronomy, and a 1st-year graduate student at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Statistics focusing on Statistics and Statistical Learning, in the Johns Hopkins University. Prior to coming to Hopkins, I obtained my B.S. in Physics and B.Ec. in Mathematical Statistics from Xiamen University.

I am working as a graduate research assistant at the Extrasolar Planetary Systems Imaging Group in the Space Telescope Science InstituteMy research focuses on:
- High contrast imaging of the extrasolar planetary systems (methodology).
- Modeling of the circumstellar disks with long timeline and multiple wavelength observations (ground + space).
