Panel 1


I am passionate about the mysteries of the universe. And my research interests lie at the forefront of the fields of physics, cosmology and nonlinear dynamics.

I believe that the nature of dark matter is one of the most important and pressing mysteries in physics today, and the current focus of my PhD is the ultralight dark matter model, especially its possible roles in contexts such as the evolution of dwarf galaxies, and collision and tidal disruption events within galaxy clusters.

I am also interested in gravitational waves and numerical relativity. I began my physics degree in the same year LIGO made the first detection of a black hole-black hole merger event, which marked the beginning of a new era of astronomy. I always dreamed about the prospects of one day using gravitational waves to test our understanding of the universe and make discoveries about its structure and evolution.

Other Projects

As someone with extensive mathematical physics training, I was once overflowing with a sense of boundless optimism and confidence. However, with time I had come to realize that despite my background, there is still much to learn. I recognize that knowledge is a lifelong pursuit that encompasses not just the natural sciences, but also the arts and humanities. As such, this website has evolved to be not only a showcase of my research work, but also an archive of my ongoing journey of discovery.

On FWPhys, I share reading notes, record my experience with emerging technologies, comment on lesser-known events that shaped humanity, and share my achievements exploring other creative avenues such as photography, digital media production, and industrial design.

Salutations, then, dear reader. You may be someone I have never met, whose paths may never have crossed mine. Whether you are a fellow scholar, a student, or simply someone seeking to expand your own horizons, I hope that something here will be of value to you.

All who wander are not lost.

Matching Humans

I am writing this brief essay as a witness to history. As of the publication of this blog post, I have not personally sought access to GPT4, and so recognise that this essay contributes little to the worldwide technical discussion. Nonetheless I felt compelled to voice my emotions over the recent developments. If not near … Continue reading Matching Humans

Afar – Prologue

快把星光盛进篮子,按下宇宙的暂停键!在无尽沉寂中,等待下一个“顷刻”。 无人歌颂时间,他们只是在时间里歌唱。 ——也让我静止,像一叠曝光的胶片,你可尽情在画面之间涂抹。 ——也让我静止,这样在下一个顷刻,你就能尝试解开我心中的结。它由无数时序的思绪交织而成,人们已然称之为生命本身。 ——也让我静止,这样可以提醒我哪怕形如短暂的,一丝顾虑,一份彷徨,时光中崩解的沙质城堡,也是不可回溯的远方,无价的珍宝。 Quickly gather starlight in a basket,and press the universe’s Pause button!In endless stillness,await the next “instant.” No one sings praises to time;they merely sing within it. — And now make me still,like a stack of exposed film.So you can freely smudge between frames. — And now me still.So in the … Continue reading Afar – Prologue
