Those pleasure that science gives to me,
I would love to share with everyone.

Sharing the beauty of science to public is always my pleasure. I have published several articles in amateur astronomer magazines. I also have rich experiences of giving popular science talks in planetarium, high school, and other public events.
AND... if you are interested in, here is also a Youtube video of the song I sang in front of Galileo Galilei's house in Padova, where he uesed his telescopes to observe the sky for the first time in the history of humankind, 1609. The song "shoulders of giants" (in English).

符晓婷, 2004年高中毕业后进入北京交通大学研习物理,硕士时投入从小热爱的天文学怀抱,于中国科学院国家天文台钻研银河系结构和恒星演化,妄图探索和了解我们所处的世界究竟是怎样的。 曾作为访问学者求学于加州理工学院、加州大学圣克鲁兹分校和伦斯勒理工学院,现在意大利国际高等研究院攻读天体物理博士学位。 不玩科研时为二手文艺女青年一枚,好摄影,拿过中国国家地理摄影比赛的一等奖;喜唱歌,能假模假式唱几句咏叹调;贪恋游泳,为过去时专业运动员; 杂书什么都读。曾在地震灾区做志愿者,也曾本科时每周徜徉于中国科技馆,以志愿讲解分享科学的欢乐为乐,做过杂志编辑,也当过趣味物理老师,信奉“温暖、笔挺、趣味地活着”, 总想蹦蹦跳跳地去更多地看看这个世界,并且希望能用自己的行动让这个世界变得更好。

以下是我写过的一些科普文章的链接

As a photographer

  • I'm also a photographer.
    For me photography is a way to express myself and tell stories.
