Chao-Chin Yang (楊朝欽)

Welcome to my homepage. I am currently a senior research fellow (forskare) in Lund Observatory in Sweden. I graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in the United States in 2010 and received a Ph.D. degree in Astronomy. My dissertation research was done in the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. I then spent two years as a postdoctoral scholar in the University of California, Santa Cruz, before moving to Sweden in December 2012.

My research interests include planet formation, magnetohydrodynamics, galactic dynamics, and interstellar medium. I primarily use computer simulations with the Pencil Code, a high-order finite-difference code for astrophysical fluids and particles. I have been a co-developer of the code since 2007.
