The MIT Kavli Institute paves the way for new developments in space- & ground-based astrophysics. Our faculty, research staff, and students develop technology & instrumentation with a focus on an engineering and technical core.
Researchers at The Kavli Institute for Astrophysics and Space Research explore extreme and unusual phenomena found beyond the Earth including extrasolar planets, black holes, neutron stars, and distant galaxies and clusters of galaxies.
I did my undergraduate in engineering mechanics in Tsinghua University from 2010 to 2014. I visited Hong Kong University of Science and Technology in the summer of 2013, and I worked as a student intern in Brown University in the spring of 2014. My past works are mostly involved in computations and simulations of mechanical behaviors of solid materials.
I became a graduate student in the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics at MIT since the fall of 2014. Now I’m working with Dr. Mark L. Schattenburg in the Space Nanotechnology Laboratory on the slumping of X-ray optics.
