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.
