I have worked as a staff scientist in the Theoretical Division at Los Alamos National Laboratory since the winter of 2022. Before that, I was a postdoc fellow at the Center for Nonlinear Studies (CNLS) at Los Alamos. I received my Ph.D. in physics from Purdue University in the spring of 2019, and I got my bachelor's degree in theoretical physics from the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) in 2012.
