I am a fourth-year graduate student under the supervision of Prof. Adam K Leibovich and Prof. Daniel Boyanovsky. I use nonequilibrium dynamics to explore a broad range of physics aspects while other methods are also adopted when needed, such as quantum optics, topological physics. A wide spectrum of properties is studied in the exploration, for example, thermalization, decoherence, entropy production, energy-matter transport and so on. My recent projects investigate nonequilibrium evolution of axion in CMB, meson mixing in the Early Universe, and binary coalescence related to gravitational waves.
