About Myself

I am currently an assistant reserach fellow at the Academia Sinica Institute of Astronomy and Astrophysics (ASIAA) in Taipei, Taiwan. My research insterest focuses on the formation and evolution of galaxies using deep multi-wavelength observations. More specifically, I study the role of galaxy interactions in galaxy evolution, the environmental impact on the galaxy properties, and the large-scale structure of the universe. I was involved in the  DEEP2 redshift survey and part of the EGS team. I have also been leading a deep near-infrared survey in GOODS-N using CFHT/WIRCAM.  Currently I participate the PanSTARRS One (PS1) survey to study the galaxy evolution in group/clustser environments. I am also participating in the planning of the deep and ultra-deep survey for the upcoming HSC survey using Hyper-SuprimeCam on the Subaru telescope.
