About Me

I enrolled in Huazhong University of Science and Technology in 1988 and got my B.S. degree of physics in 1991. From 1991 to 1995, I continued my studies in physics in Institute of Theoretical Physics, Academia Sinica, and got my M.S. degree in 1994. From fall 1995 to Spring 2001, I studied at Physics Department of The University of Texas at Austin and got my Ph.D. degree in May 2001. I joined Chongqing University of Posts and Telecommunications in China as a professor from 2003 to 2011. Currently I am a full professor in the School of Physics in Huazhong University of Science and Technology. I am also an adjunct professor in the Astronomy Department of Beijing Normal University and in the CASPER center of Baylor University.

My daugter was born on October 18, 2001 in Portland and my son was born on July 27, 2003 in Beaverton.

Some Interesting Places.

Research Interests

Cosmology: Inflation-In 1980s, Alan Guth proposed the inflationary scenario, i.e., the Universe experienced a very short period of expansion with acceleration  in early times, to solve the problems encountered in the standard big bang cosmology. Inflationary models predict that the geometry of the universe is flat. Inflation models also give good explanations on primordial density fluctuations which seed the formation of large scale structure. Recently WMAP and PLANCK data make it possible to test inflationary models more precisely. dark energy-In 1998, the SCP and HZT groups independently discovered the evidence that the Universe is in a phase of accelerating expansion. The simplest explanation of this phenomenon is to introduce the cosmological constant. To avoid the cosmological constant problem, a type of exotic matter with anti-gravity force, dubbed as dark energy, is usually invoked to explain the accelerating universe.
