My name is Yuhan Yao (姚雨含). I’m a Miller Fellow in the Department of Astronomy at UC Berkeley.

I am interested in time domain astronomy and high energy astrophysics. I use wide-field sky surveys and targeted multi-wavelength observations to study the physics of energetic transients, such as the disruption of stars by massive black holes and the explosions of stars.

Before coming to Berkeley, I obtained my PhD in Astrophysics from Caltech, and received my B.S. in Astronomy from Peking University.
