Graduate Student

Department of Physics and Astronomy, Texas A&M University


I am currently a graduate student at Department of Physics and Astronomy, Texas A&M University. I received my B.S. and M.S. in physics in 2012 and 2015 from Beihang University (BUAA). I used to study low-energy nuclear physics, and now has joined the group searching for the unknown particle properties of Dark Matter. Now I am working on DCRC Calibration and Tests for SuperCDMS and Data Analysis for 8Be abnormal decay experiment.
