Astronomy & Space Sciences


I am entering my 5th year of PhD studies, studying the dynamics of Kepler's multi-planet systems. The goal is to explain the origins and diversity of observed planet system architectures. I am happily advised by Prof. Dong Lai. I am also working on applying deep learning methods to astronomical data. Prior to my PhD studies, I attended the University of Toronto where I worked with Professors Yanqin Wu and Diana Valencia.
