About: Lile Wang
WANG, Lile (Chinese: 王 力乐) is a 5th year graduate student in the Department of Astrophysical Sciences in Princeton University.
I am now interested in theoretical/computational astrophysics.
I work on combining dynamics (hydro/MHD) with consistent thermochemistry, applied to, e.g.:
- Protoplanetary disk wind
- Photoevaporation of low-mass exoplanet atmosphere
- AGN disk corona and outflow
I also directly work on GPU programming to accelerate computations, especially on thermochemical networks and Monte Carlo radiative transfer. Currently my desktop computer (AMD Ryzen 1800X + NVIDIA GTX 1080 TI) beats 128 cores on latest InfiniBand clusters by more than 1.5 times in speed for (radiation + thermochemistry + dynamics) simulations.
Before coming to Princeton in 2013, I received my B.S. degree in physics from Tsinghua University (Beijing, China) in July, 2012. Then I visited Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) as an affiliate, working mainly on cosmological perturbation theory of large scale structures.
