Hanjue Zhu 朱涵珏PhD student @ UChicago Astronomy & Astrophysics.
I am a third-year PhD student in the Department of Astronomy & Astrophysics at the University of Chicago. I have broad research interests and experience in galaxy formation and cosmology. I enjoy using different tools (numerical simulations, machine learning, observations and analytical calculations) to study the universe. The one-sentence summary of my current research is: I study galaxies near and far, but not in between.
A major theme is my research is cosmic reionization and I study the Epoch of Reionization using numerical simulations. My PhD advisor is Prof. Nick Gnedin (who, according to himself, is also a movie director).
When I’m not doing research in my office, I am doing research at home I enjoy reading, going to the theater, playing the piano and violin, and anything outdoors.
