Visitor Period of stay Research interests
Piero Madau
University of California Santa Cruz
15 Oct 2018 to 29 Oct 2018 Dr. Madau has pioneered many areas that later developed into staples of standard modern cosmology. His tools range from pencil-and-paper to the most ambitious cosmological N-body and hydrodynamical simulations.

Jianhui LIAN
University of Portsmouth
25 Jun 2018 My current research interest mainly lies in understanding the chemical evolution of external galaxies and our Milky Way from both an observational and an theoretical angle. Besides, I am also interested in the star formation history of galaxies, especially the quenching process, and galaxy structure from deep and high spatial resolution photometry.
