Mouyuan Sun’s homepage

Welcome to my homepage. I’m currently an associate professor (selected as Nanqiang Young Top-notch Talents (class B) of Xiamen University) at the Department of Astronomy, Xiamen University. I’m an astrophysicist who studies the astrophysics of supermassive black holes (e.g., the one you watched in the famous movie Interstellar; or read this nice review for non-expert) in the center of active galaxies. In the meantime, I’m also interested in smaller black holes, namely, the stellar black holes and the intermediate-mass black holes. I use multi-wavelength data (collected by various telescopes spanning the electromagnetic spectrum), high-quality light curves and theoretical models to probe the astrophysics of black holes. Please check out this website or some of my publications to learn more about my research.
