Welcome to my personal webpage. I am a fifth year PhD Physics student at MIT expecting to graduate in September 2021. I signed up a class at Harvard in 2016 and use Harvard Scholar as my personal website. I am an NSF-GRFP Fellow and am now working toward my PhD thesis at the European Center for Nuclear Research, in Geneva, Switzerland. I plan to move to Brookhaven National Laboratory at Upton, Long Island, New York. I am looking for positions in academia, government, or industry after my graduation with a PhD in Physics in 2021.
My current research interest is mainly in studying the properties of Quark-Gluon Plasma, a type of hot and dense QCD matter creared under extremely high temperature and density condition and demonstrating perfect liquid behavior. Quark-Gluon Plasma is believed to exist in the early universe, several microseconds after the Big Bang.
To create and study the properties of Quark-Gluon Plasma in laboratories, we collide heavy nuclei at high energy using particle accelerators such as the Large Hadron Collider located at the European Center for Nuclear Research in the border of Switzerland and France and the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider at Brookhaven National Laboratory in Long Island, New York. We use state-of-the-art particle detectors to record these collisions. I am currently a member of the CMS experiment and sPHENIX experiment working on data analysis and detector hardware upgrade.
In addition, I spend sometime working on electromagnetic calorimeter research and development for future Electron-Ion Collider experiments.
I also serve as a reviewer for peer-reviewed journals and an external expert for grant proposal review.
