Research Interests

I am leading the group of high energy astrophysics in the institute to carry out the following work:

1. Promoting the approval of large aperture imaging atmospheric Cerenkov Telescopes under the cooperation among Yunnan University, Yunnan Astronomical Observatories and Institute of High Energy Physics, a major instrument project of the National Natural Science Foundation.

2. Using LHAASO finished array for the study of TeV blazars, particularly the TeV radiation mechanism and the absorption of the extragalactic background light.

3. Using FAST and Fermi-Lat to carry out cross identification and observation research on pulsars.

4. Using HXMT and Fermi-Lat to observe X-ray binaries and to carry out theoretical analysis.

5. Using deep radio survey data to study the cosmological evolution of active galactic nuclei and star-forming galaxies.

6. Studying the high energy emission and particle acceleration mechanisms of TeV blazars, particularly self-consistent model including the anisotropic MHD cascade triggered by MHD instability in the jet scale, the particle acceleration occurred at the wave-particle resonances at small scales, the radiative losses and the particle distribution strongly elongated in the direction of the background magnetic field.
