Research Profile

I am a professor of astronomy at the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC). 
I have broad interests in astronomy but most of my work is in the area of the physical 
properties of galaxies, from nearby to high redshift galaxies, with data from NAOC2.16m 
telescope, BATC, SDSS, LAMOST, Subaru and so on.
