Jun Yang

Center for Astrophysics


Jun Yang's research focuses on pulsars, interstellar medium, and intergalactic medium with high-resolution X-ray and optical spectroscopy and modeling. Her expertise in neutron stars is complemented by her broad study of space physics. She started her career by studying the Earth's ionosphere. Inspired by the Earth's magnetosphere, she looked further towards more extreme magnetic environments, the magnetosphere of neutron stars including pulsars, to test fundamental physics. Besides work, she loves outdoor activities, reading, and playing board games.
