Tsang Keung Chan
Tsang Keung Chan is a computational astrophysicist. He develops novel numerical models to address various astrophysical problems, from dark matter halos to radiation. Currently, he is investigating the relationship between reionization, galaxies, and the intergalactic medium. Ultimately, he plans to bridge the high redshift and the present-day, nearby universe, using state-of-the-art simulations. Outside of astronomy, Chan enjoys playing cello, practicing badminton, and planning the next travel adventure.
Michael Zhang, finishing PhD at Caltech, who also has a 51 Pegasi b Fellowship from the Heising-Simon’s Foundation. Michael Zhang studies exoplanet atmospheres. His two current projects are probing photoevaporation from young mini Neptunes by looking for escaping hydrogen and helium, and measuring the atmospheric composition of rocky planets with JWST. In a previous life, Zhang was a software engineer at Microsoft. Outside of science, he is a Roman history buff, an international relations enthusiast, and a foodie who also loves trying exotic cuisines.
