Hi, my name is 杨辰涛 (Yang, Chentao). The first-name means star (辰, chen) waves (涛, tao) in Chinese. I am currently a postdoc at the Department of Space, Earth and Environment of the Chalmers University of Technology since November 2021. Previously, I was an European Southern Observatory (ESO) Fellow in Chile with duties at the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA). Check out my profile article on ESO's The Messenger, issue No. 177.
My research interests mainly focus on observing the extragalactic objects via submm/mm windows. I primarily study the molecular gas and dust contents (the cold interstellar medium, ISM) in galaxies from the local to the high-redshift Universe. I am especially interested in water molecules (which is a unique diagnostic tool of the ISM properties). With the ISM, I try to understand the various physical processes that happen in galaxies.
Besides, I am one of the contributing authors and website administrators of Astroleaks (in Chinese), which is a kind of group blog daily summarizing astro-journal articles posted on arXiv astro-ph.
