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 covered in 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 the theory of gravity. I am a developer of the general relativistic magnetohydrodynamics code RAISHIN and a contributor to BHAC (Black Hole Accretion Code). I’m a contributor to the general relativistic radiation transfer code BHOSS.

I am a member of the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) project and was 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 the EHT Speakers Bureau and a member of the EHT Science Council.
