Under the semi-analytic modeling framework developed by my advisor, I investigate the formation of galaxies at high redshifts (z ~ 4 - 15) and the statistical distributions of their physical properties. With the galaxies predicted by our models, I also model cosmic reionization under the influence of these galaxies. Stay tuned for our latest results!
I am currently taking a break from teaching! ;-)

I was born and raised in Hong Kong! In 2007, I moved to Hawaii with my family and completed high school in 2009. After brief attendance at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, I moved to California and obtained my bachelor's degree in physics and mathematics from the University of San Francisco. Immediately after that, I moved to New Jersey for graduate study in Astrophysics.
Use of Name
In my pre-2016 career, I was referred to as Long Yan Yung, which is a direct phonetic translation of my name under the scheme established during the British-Hong Kong time. Although my name has a Chinese origin, it follows neither of the more popular Chinese nor Taiwanese pronunciation schemes. In order to elimintate confusion in pronunciation, I have decided to initialize that to L.Y. and go by Aaron as it is always part of my name.
