    My main interests lie in the theoretical and observational aspects of modern cosmology. This includes the study of Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB), Loop Quantum Gravity, the large-scale structure of the universe, its formation, the topology of the universe, Cosmic Defects (such as monopoles, cosmic strings), Inflation, origin and evolution of the cosmos, and cosmological data analysis. I am currently involved in several projects of modern cosmology, including the Planck satellite project by ESA, and the AMiBA project in Taiwan.
