Hi! You've reached Zhou's website.

I am a physicist in training at UC Santa Cruz interested in the nature of dark matter. I am trying to tackle the question with data from wide and deep-field surveys, predictions from theory and simulations, and tools from artificial intelligence and statistics.

See my CV here.

-----------------------------------

My academic journey started at the University of Washington where I studied philosophy and classics for two years. Then I moved to Duke where I studied physics, mathematics, and the history of economic thought for another two years. Now I am a graduate student in the Physics Department at UC Santa Cruz.

-----------------------------------

My last name is Zhou 周 and my first name is Conghao 丛浩. I go by my last name Zhou, which is pronounced like "Joe" but in a different tone. If there is another Zhou in the room who also goes by their last name, I go by C.H. Zhou.

Thanks to my fantastic mentors, I am now convinced I can also be a good physicist if I put in the work. I would like to pass on the help, the kindness, and the encouragement I received and still am receiving. Through mentoring and outreach, I am trying my best to convince younger generations that, no matter who they are and what their past experience with physics is, they have the potential to do great physics.

-----------------------------------

My broader academic interests include history and philosophy of science, continental philosophy, and visual culture.

When I am not working on physics, I learn languages, practice music, make films and animations, and chat with my amazing art historian partner Chuyu Jade Xiong about all kinds of fun things. Together we run a multimedia studio Laboratory Umakino.

I worked as a journalism intern, a videographer, and a marketing assistant at various times in my life when I was away from physics.
