Chia-Yu Hu

Chia-Yu Hu joined the foundation in 2016 as a research fellow at the Center for Computational Astrophysics. His research focuses on the physics of the interstellar medium and its connection to galaxy evolution. To this end, Chia-Yu develops accurate numerical methods and conducts high-resolution numerical simulations to follow the complex interplay between different physical processes at multiple scales. Before joining the foundation, Chia-Yu was a graduate student at the Max-Planck-Institute for Astrophysics in Garching, Germany, where he completed his Ph.D. in astrophysics. He holds an M.S. in astrophysics and a B.S. in materials engineering from National Taiwan University.
