About Me

Education History

I spent four years as an undergraduate (major: low-termpature superconductivity) in the physics department in the University of Science and Technology of China, USTC . I then went to Princeton Unversity . and spent four memorable years in the Dept. of Astrophysical Sciences under the CUSPEA programme sponsored by the Nobel Prize winner TD Lee. I did my PhD thesis with Bohdan Paczynski (who recently passed away on April 2007) on gamma-ray bursts and gravitational lensing . After my graduate student years, I moved to Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics for three years, as a Harvard-Smithsonian postdoctoral fellow. I then moved to the Max-Planck Institute for Astrophysics (MPA) in Garching in Germany as a long-term postdoctoral fellow. My four years at MPA have been very productive and enjoyable.

I have been at Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics at Manchester University in UK since Jan. 2000.
