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.
