During her undergraduate study, Jingyi has also been at UC Berkeley as an exchange student for one semester, and has spent a summer at Caltech doing a SURF project in the NuSTAR group. Jingyi’s research has been focused on applying the X-ray reflection spectroscopy to X-ray data from telescopes such as RXTE, NuSTAR and Swift, to study the accretion and environment of black hole binary systems. She is working with Professor Erin Kara and is a member of The Kara Black Hole Group.
