Chentao Yang's page

Welcome to the webpage of Chentao Yang

Hi, my name is 杨辰涛 (Yang, Chentao). The first-name means star (, chen) waves (, tao) in Chinese. Welcome to my personal page! I am currently an European Southern Observatory (ESO) fellow in Chile with duties at the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), since November 2017.

If you are interested, please check out my profile article on The Messenger of ESO, issue No. 177: 2019Msngr.177...70E.

My research interests mainly focus on the submm/mm observational regimes of extragalactic objects. I primarily study the molecular gas and dust contents (the cold interstellar medium) 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) in galaxies. Using the dust continuum and line emissions from various molecules/atoms, I try to understand the properties of the interstellar medium and their connection with the star formation within the 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.
