My study in cosmology focuses on the formation of galaxies in the large-scale structure of the Universe. Cosmology is a data-driven science. I develop the necessary software and tools that can efficiently handle these data on platforms from laptops to supercomputers, including (1) massively parallel software to solve gravity and hydrodynamics on tens of thousands of computing nodes, (2) tools to visualize density estimation of large particle datasets with hundreds of billions of particles, and (3) algorithms to understand the clustering of galaxies. I also contribute to open source data science software projects as a user developer. I strongly believe in the power of adequate tools in data-driven science research.
