Biography

I am currently a postdoc at the Physics & Astronomy Department at Texas A&M University. I am broadly interested in various astrophysical probes of dark matter : how we can understand the nature of dark matter with cosmological data. Recently I had studied how the dark matter halo properties of Milky Way satellite galaxies vary in different dark matter models by combining stellar kinematic measurement with cosmological N-body numerical simulation. My research interests span topics from galaxy evolution in the Local Group, large-scale structure, astrophysical uncertainties on direct and indirect dark matter search.
