My research focus on the dynamical studies of galaxies (from dwarfs to large spirals) and galaxy clusters, which help us understand the dark matter problem. I had studied the rotation curves of 175 late-type galaxies from the Spitzer Photometry & Accurate Rotation Curves (SPARC) database, and tested various dark matter models and feedback mechanisms. I recently joined the eROSITA collaboration and plan to study the dark matter problem with X-ray data. I am also enthusiastic about alternative models to the standard cosmology such as MOND.
