Welcome to my website. I’m Theoretical Astrophysicist. I’m interested in theoretical and numerical astrophysics for the black hole and related high-energy astrophysical phenomena of relativistic astrophysical plasma in the universe. My research is widely covered on black hole astrophysics, including the accretion and relativistic jet formation around black holes, jet propagation & stability, magnetic dissipation in jet & particle acceleration, black hole shadow, and theory of gravity. I am a developer of the general relativistic magnetohydrodynamics code RAISHIN and contributor of BHAC (Black Hole Accretion Code). I’m contributor of general relativistic radiation transfer code BHOSS.

I am a member of the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) project, and was a one of the coordinators of the EHT Theory and Simulation working group (2020-2022: together with Prof. Jason Dexter and Prof. Hung-Yi Pu. ; 2017-2020: together with Prof. Charles Gammie and Prof. Hung-Yi Pu). Currently I’m a committee member of EHT Speakers Bureau.
