Research Interests

My current research focuses on black hole astrophysics, an interesting and exciting field including physics of accretion flow, relativistic jet, magnetohydrodynamics, and radiative transfer. Especially, I am interested in VLBI (Very Long Baseline Interferometry) observational features of black hole accretion/jet on the event horizon scale, which can be tested by the ongoing worldwide collaborations: projects of Greenland Telescope and Event Horizon Telescope.
